1 996-1 997 has been a very special year for the yearbook because the three schools have decided to do the layout and 
design of all the pages on the computer. It has been particularly difficult for the Senior School because we had to train all 
the members of the Committee to use PageMaker and to make matters worse, I am a complete computer idiot! Luckily, 
with the help of Mr, Jackson, Mrs. Richards and the support of Ms, Roth, we all survived the transition and most of the staff 
are now capable of operating the program. 

Special thanks to Mr. Smith, for photocopying all the tiny images (Sorry for killing all those trees!!) designed by this year's 
top grade 1 1 artist, David Tseng. The Middle School section and parts of the Senior School section are "equipped" with 
"Flip-Pages TM", and hopefully, all of you will be flipping through the yearbook more than once for "non-stop" cartoon 
action. Thanks to Aries for chatting with me and coming up with this fabulous idea. 

Thanks also to Mrs. Card, the Accounting Office, the Development Office, Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Winters, Mrs. Nason and Mrs. 
Strauss for their help and continuous support. The yearbook will not exist without their assistance and constant 

This yearbook cannot possibly be produced without the help of the yearbook staff and there are just too many of you to 
mention! A big thank you to all of you for your hard work and for giving up your spare time everyday after school to help. 
To the grads who helped out this year, good luck to all of you in the future! To those who are staying, Steve Wong will need 
your regular support next year because he will be taking over as Editor, with Vanessa Lee as his assistant. 

Some final thoughts on the yearbook; the main reason for joining the Yearbook Committee for the past 2 years is because I 
feel very proud when I see a page that I have designed appear in over 600 yearbooks. Besides that, every single page in 
the yearbook gives everyone a particular memory about a certain event and this is what makes the job really rewarding. 

Thanks again for a tremendous and truly unforgettable experience. 


-Michelle Hau 
Editor, 96-97 


When I decided to make St Michaels University School my new career and Victoria my home, I knew I 
was beginning an exciting phase in my life. You do not make such changes without long, serious 
thoughts and lots of self analysis. I had to think hard about the affect upon my family as well as 
myself. I had to weigh the benefits of change opposed to stability. In the end my family's risk-taking, 
adventurous side took precedence over any qualms that we had. We have not regretted it one bit. 

I knew the Junior School would be a warm and busy environment where the attitudes to academics 
and personal growth were equally balanced in a nurturing and challenging environment. The school 
has provided many opportunities for me to learn and grow this year. I have thrilled at the excitement 
the students have derived from their studies. At every grade level there was a sense of energy as 
new projects or activities were initiated. The interest of these young children in their own learning is 
always high and constant. Teaching such children is an enormous privilege and, of course, lots of 
fun. You can more than meet learning expectations and go on to stretch those minds further. It is 
humbling and energizing to be a leader in this wonderful school! 

I would like to thank all the parents and students of the Junior School who made me feel welcome 
from the first day on. The patience you have all displayed as I learned the ropes of my new world has 
been long-suffering! Neither would I have been as effective without the support of the marvelous 
teachers of the Junior School. They have spent many hours teaching me the traditions and routines 
that are important to a school with the reputation we have at St. Michaels University School. Patient 
to the end, has been Wendy Wilson, who has organized me daily, weekly, monthly, with never an 
exasperated word or look! 

Finally, I would like to say a fond farewell to Peter Bousfield, teacher of Grade 5 English and Grade 4 
Social Studies this year. After many years Mr. Bousfield is retiring to begin an exciting life on the golf 
course and tennis courts. We hope he will enjoy every well-earned minute! The good wishes and 
resounding thanks of the whole school, teachers, students, young and old, near and far, go with him. 

Farewell for now-see you in the September in the newly renovated halls of the Junior School!

Farewell, Mr. Bousfield 

We bid a fond farewell to Mr. Bousfield in June. After a long association witfi the 
school, including his early education and 26 years of teaching, he decided he 
wanted more time for golf, and other interests. He will be remembered as a fine 
teacher of English and Social Studies, who managed yearly, to encourage won- 
derful writing from his students. We're happy to know that his commitment to the 
school will continue, as he will be involved at the Development Office. We'll miss 
those wonderful one liners that put smiles on all our faces. Enjoy your well 
deserved retirement, Mr. Bousfield. 

The following is an excerpt from a song sung by the female staff for Mr. Bousfield 
at his retirement dinner. Lyrics by Sunny Pollard 

Thank heavens. Bowser Boy, you're going to join the newest swinging scene. 

Thank heavens, Bowser Boy, you're changing from caffeine to Ovaltine. 

Your charm, your laughs still lift us to the ceiling, one silly comment always sends 

the staff room reeling. 

Thank heavens, we've worked with you; we won't forget your charm, your wit ...A 

teacher such as you.... Without you. ...What would boys and girls do? 

Thank heavens... .Thank heavens.... 

Thank heavens.... Just for you!

The Discovery of Planet X 
The year was 2046. The month was June. There was a probe 
sent out into space, to see if there was a Planet X. Discoverer 1 
was two times as fast as light. In one hour, Discoverer 1 was at 
the asteroid belt. It went past Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and 
Pluto. Then Discoverer 1 blasted up to the stars. The probe 
had all sorts of stuff on it. Oxygen tanks, astronauts, cargo, zap 
guns for shooting unexpected Aliens, and some food. Then 
they saw a light. It was bigger than all of them. They got closer 
to it, but it was only a star. Then they saw something else. It 
was quite invisible. It was a black hole. They quickly turned 
away and landed on a planet, but it wasn't Planet X. It was 
Planet S. What had happened was that Discoverer 1 had 
landed on one of Planet X's moons. Then they took off and 
Discoverer 1 landed on Planet X. They got off the probe and 
took a look around. They looked around and saw nothing. 
Then they heard something. It was getting louder and louder 
and louder, and then they saw it. It was an alien army. They 
ran back to Discoverer 1 (the probe). They took off and did the 
same thing backward all the way to Earth. When they got back, 
they told everybody about their adventure. 
Kevin O'Riordan 

As I look out my window at the pouring rain, 
I think about how it's rained again. 
I can't go outside anymore, 
I sigh as I look at the door. 
As I sing a song, 

I keep on thinking about how this weekend is so long. 
I want to go to school. 
I am tired of not one rule. 
My brother is at a sleepover, 
and no one can come over. 

Just as I look outside to see the rain has come to a stop, 
I am so happy I begin to hop!

The Blizzard 
of 96. 

One day there was snow and more came then 
some ice and it turned into the blizzard of 96. 
Then some wind came.

Five Little Dinosaurs 
Five little dinosaurs trying to roar, 
Along came a rock fall then there were four. 
Four little dinosaurs swimming in the sea, 
Along came a huge wave then there were three. 
Three little dinosaurs needing something to do, 
Along came a Deinoychus then there were two. 
Two little dinosaurs staring at the sun. 
Along came a drought then there was one. 
One little dinosaur our story's almost done, 
Along came an Iguanadon then there was none.

A Winter's Night in the Snow 

As I gallop through the woods on my horse, Calypso 
the snow gently patters on my back. I slow Calypso 
down to a walk to watch the soft, heavy snow, come 
down thicker, weighing the branches down until they 
almost touch the ground. I watch the snowflakes, 
dancing, whirling, around and around until they fall to 
the ground. This calm, peaceful world is suddenly 
shattered as a pheasant beats its wings and flutters to 
the sky, causing a heavily snow-laden branch to sway, 
dropping all of its snow. The snow becomes thicker so 
that I can only see a few feet ahead of me. I call to my 
horse to head home, but my voice is lost in the wind. 
Calypso didn't need me to tell him to head home, he 
knew already. As I leave the dark, cold woods, I think 
how peaceful it is. 

Diana Izard, 4F 

Festive Food 

As I walked in the kitchen I could 
smell that old fashioned scrumptious 
smell and the sound of the water 
sizzling. And when I sat down we 
said grace and the lined surface of 
the gnochhi was so fluffy, so bumpy, 
so spicy. The white soft gnocchi so 
chewy, so chewy, so chewy. At my 
Grandma's it is always cheerful, 
always warm. The old flowered table 
cloth I know so well, always warm, 
always big.

The Lion 

Prowling through his fields. 
Lord of the Land, he is 
His mane-his crownn, 
His eyes-a terror to gaze on 
His teeth are swords. 

As he turns, 

An antelope grazes near. 

He stalks it. 

And brings it down. 

He roars, 

A loud, terrifying roar. 

That makes echoes over the land. 

As the king 

He never goes hungry, 

Taking food from others, 

Just by showing his proud, muscular 


sleeping in peace, 

All but invincible. 

He is the lion. 

Lord of the Land

A Sundae In May 

A sundae in May 

Is wonderful I say. 

A sundae on a hot day. 

A sundae in December 

Is not one to remember. 

For something hot, is a better 


A sundae is, 

as you will see, 

A wonderfully tasty thing 

If it's strawberry or butterscotch, 

Maple or cherry 

It tastes delicious, all the same

The string orchestra musicians at the Junior School learned 
new skills and performed with enthusiasm on serval occa- 
sions this year. Grade 4 strings learned their basic skills in 
the fall, and subsequently performed in school assemblies 
and at the Arts Festival. The Grade 5 class journeyed with 
their instruments in 2nd term to Middle School and per- 
formed in a chapel service. At the end of the third term their 
visit was to the Senior School where they experienced a 
stringclass with the Grade 10 students. That was fun! The 
cross grade orchestra played in December at the Monterey 
Centre, at the Carol Service and in the final presentation at 
Speech Day. It was a fine year of strong ensemble playing 
and we were happy to introduce our new school director to 
the sound of music making. 

Mrs. M. F. Smith 



During the Christmas season the Grade 5 and 12 choirs and Grade 5 strings 
performed at the Monterey Senior's Centre for their annual December tea. 
This has been quite a tradition, and the date has already been set for the next 
gathering. The SMUS Christmas Bazaar started off with festive singing of 
carols from the Grade 4, 5, and 12 choirs, and the term ended with all Grades 
K-5 participating in the Junior School Carol Service. 

In February during the mid term break, members of the Grade 4/5 choir were 
invited to perform at a Memorial Service in the Lt. Governor General's House, 
and in March, the Grades 4/5 choirs joined in a massed choral celebration with 
the Grade 9, 10, 11, 12, and Alumni Choirs in the old gym at the Senior 

On May 14th, the Grade 3 class joined forces with the Grades 4 and 5, and 
performed several choral selections, as well as playing recorders. This concert 
also included all the stnngs players. 

The final presentation of the year was at Prize Day, which took place in the 
Royal Theatre. 

It has been a pleasure working with this year's Grade 5 class, and I hope they 
will continue to sing on their journey through the Middle and Senior School.

As I slowly blunder in the cold, dark forest, 
As the snow slowly drifts down from the sky, 
I am trying to find my way, I am trying to find my 
way home. 

As the snow gets heavier, 

As a bright yellow, bird flashes by, 

I am trying to find my way home, I am trying to find 

my way home. 

There is my house, I see it over there. 

The one with the windows, frosty and patterned, 

I have found my way home, I have found my way 


Julie Ehrmantraut, Grade 4D 

Wonderful Spring 

The golden sun casts rays of yellow 

Upon our wonderful world 

And all the animals that share Earth 

With all considerate folk. 

Newborn animals chirp and bleat. 

To peck and graze from day to day, 

For us to look at Mother Nature's 

Radiant bouquet of countless colours 

Flowing to meet the sea of sky. 

In the distance the clouds flushed, 

A joyous pink from the departing of 

The weary sun. 

Soon the stars will set out 

To help the moon to lead the way. 

Evan Morgan, Grade 4F 

The French Board Walk 

The early morning touch of sun. 

Rose over the town and then began. 

To sprinkle its light over the sea. 

Which brought out the warmth like in a cup of tea. 

I edged toward the old grey dock, 

To see if maybe the winds could talk, 

They spoke in a very gentle voice, 

"We give a small breeze or gusts your choice!" 

I saw a mademoiselle in a fancy dress. 
Which I envied for my dress was less, 
She walked her normal walk with style, 
Which I tried to learn for quite a while. 

Farrah Merali, Grade 5J 

A Mouth Watering Pizza 



Big and Round 

To sink my teeth 

I dream of you 

Pepperoni, Cheese, 

Peppers, Mushrooms, 


Hard to resist 

the sensation 

of those taste buds

In the sky

The Horse 

Wild and free 

A long golden streak 

He flies away running on air over the 


A speck of gold on the horizon 

Running right in the path of danger 

Never caught, always running 

On long, strong legs 

Hunters catching nothing 

But a strand of a long golden tail

The Poppy 

The Poppy 

I am a poppy 

I grow around the graves 

I am both happy and sad 

When I am happy I take care of the people who died 

When I am sad I remind you of them 

I, the poppy will be here forever 

I will remino you to think of the people that helped 

the families grow. 

I am the poppy 

I twist and turn around the graves 

With my bright red petals people see me 

They stop to think "Thank you very much" 

I am the poppy 

I am the symbol of war and peace 

People wear me on Remembrance Day 

I am the poppy I have seen everything 
I was lying around a grave when it happened 
I have seen the happiness of the soldiers 
I have seen the hurt souls of the soldiers 
It was my job to take care of the graves 

I have tried to make war stop.... 

But what can I do? I am only a flower 

Taryn Bodrug, Grade 4F 

The Poppies 

The poppies in Flanders Fields blow. 

The men who died 

lie below the crosses 

row by row. 

These mark the places of the men 

who lost their lives. 

Their lives were cut by a knife. 

They fought to set us free 

They see us above 

When they hand us the torch.

1996-97 has undoubtedly been one of the most 
successful years for sporting achievement. In the 
Fall Term our Cross Country runners won four 
championships. A team of 60 runners participated in 
the seven races and showed great determination in 
tackling the rigors of this sport. 
The Grade 5 Boy's and Girl's Soccer teams 
completed their seasons undefeated. The Boys 
played 1 games, won 9, drew 1 . The highlight of the 
season was victory at the ISA tournament defeating 
perennial powerhouse St. George's 2-1 ( goals by 
Brad Booth & Nik Puree!! ). The girl's won all seven 
of their games. 

The Basketball season was again incredibly 
successful. The Grade 5 Boys were undefeated 
and won the ISA Championship. The highlight of 
the season was the Tournament held at our Senior 
School. Students from Grades 4 & 5 played 64 
games in 3 1/2 hours- and a great time was had by 

Our Swimmers showed great dedication in attending 
early morning practises. We had a team of 35 
swimmers compete in the Victoria All School 
Championships and secured a 3rd place finish. 
The Summer Term saw the Junior School again 
host a series of track meets. Participation rates 
were very high with most students from Grades 2-5 
running. The ISA & VISAA championships produced 
4th place finishes against strong competition.

Middle School Director's Foreword 

At the start of this school year the Headmaster produced the school's educational philosophy document 
which has given St. Michaels University School a clear direction and vision. The paper emphasizes a 
commitment to excellence and to the development of the whole child as well as providing a framework for 
a sound education. 

But what does it mean to be educated? We often think in terms of academics, the arts and athletics and 
we work vigorously to improve skills in these areas. We reinforce positive values such as honesty and respect 
and strive to develop a sense of community. All these components are essential if we are to provide an 
excellent education for our students. 

But how has St. Michaels University School achieved such great success as an educational institution? 
I believe it is the understanding that the process of learning is as important as the product and that developing 
a love of learning is the true purpose of education. As Leonardo Da Vinci so aptly stated - "Just as eating 
against one's will is injurious to health, so study without a liking for it spoils the memory and it retains nothing 
it takes in." 

The faculty at St. Michaels University School recognizes various learning styles and abilities and actively 
involves the students in education. It concentrates on the development of higher level thinking skills: skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation 
and strives to produce problem solvers and creative thinkers while reinforcing basic skills to ensure a strong foundation of knowledge. The 
staff shares a great appreciation of the Arts with the students and introduces '1he finer things in life" in a stimulating fashion. All children are 
encouraged to open their minds to appreciate various artistic and musical experiences. Physical Education is a source of great pleasure 
for many students and opportunities are provided for both competitive and recreational pursuits. Enjoyment of sport and character 
development become significant objectives and contribute to personal satisfaction. 

St. Michaels University School is proud to produce students who are able to meet the challenges of university and who are able to 
select stimulating careers in a highly competitive world. However, the school is even more proud to produce students who exhibit a love of 
learning and who seek new opportunities in which their knowledge and experiences are broadened. 

Our reputation as a fine educational institution continues to flourish and 1 996\97 has been a successful school year. Academically, 
a high proportion of the students has excelled, with the grade 8 mathematics team finishing third in the Canadian National Mathematics League 
and the grade 6 team, sixteenth, in competitions with over 600 schools. Our Commonwealth Essay writers dominated the Vancouver Island 
Division presentations, accumulating sixteen awards, including a second and third place finish in B.C. All grade 7 were introduced to Writers 
in Electronic Residence based at York University and the programme allowed the children to e-mail their writing to professionals who 
responded with constructive comments. We will continue this activity next year with just a few refinements. 

Thanks to the English department and other members of staff, every child in the school was afforded the opportunity to participate 
in recitation, public speaking, and debating competitions. The most skilled performers were invited to share their talents in front of the entire 
school. This was a fine beginning to what we hope will become a Middle School tradition. 

Eight of our young artists won awards in an international competition in China, including a gold, a silver and two bronze medals. 
Another six students will have their creations displayed in the Crayola travelling exhibition occurring later this year — only eighty works were 
chosen from across North America, and a grade 8 student placed first in the local Canadian Cancer Society painting competition. In addition 
to individual achievements, two outstanding art exhibitions were organized and each contained works of brilliance. 

The musicians, as usual, displayed a great deal of professionalism and an equal amount of enthusiasm. Numerous concerts were 
performed and each one in its own way was a masterpiece. What a joy it is to see our students develop during their time at our school and 
how often we see audiences shake their heads in amazement when they are fortunate enough to be present at a performance. 

The Outdoor Programme is gaining in diversity and besides its usual challenging components, its academic content has many 
exciting prospects for next year. In the winter term, a rock climbing course was offered to many of our students and the response was 
overwhelmingly enthusiastic. We will be pursuing other outdoor education opportunities in the coming year as part of the P.E. programme. 
Once again the Middle School ran over twenty athletic teams and a large proportion of the school population was able to experience 
the joy of victory or the agony of defeat. Our Girls' Under 1 5 Soccer Team travelled to Montreal and successfully defended our Canadian 
Independent Schools' title. The team for next year is already practising and is hoping to claim its third consecutive national championship 
in Halifax during the first week of October. The Boys' Under 13 Soccer Team performed well in the national championship in Ottawa this 
year, but was unable to master atrocious weather conditions. However, the marvellous cultural experience was appreciated by all. 

The grade 8 rugby team had an exceptional season, winning all but one of its matches and securing the B.C. Independent Schools 
Championship. A highlight of the season was a thnlling 'come from behind' victory over a team from Swansea, Wales. Our players have 
the potential to become a real force in the Senior School and to uphold the fine traditions we have in this sport. The Girls' Grade 8 Basketball 
Team also had a wonderful season; despite being a small squad, it managed to get through a few rounds of the city play-offs. Similarly, the 
boys' team achieved much success against all of the odds. 

Cross country, badminton, field hockey, swimming, track and field were all competitive sports and much potential was shown. Many 

thanks to all of the dedicated and hard working coaches whose efforts in the trenches forged many of the best teacher/student relationships. 

Finally, a word to our grade 8 graduating class. It is now time for you to move on to the Senior School. The Middle School faculty 

are confident that you are ready to meet the challenge and to emerge as outstanding students, as well as fine young men and women. On 

your behalf , I would like to thank the teachers for the dedication they have shown to you all. We will follow your careers with great 

ji interest and hope that you will visit as often as possible. It has, indeed, been a privilege having you at the Middle School. Good 

______ luck.

The badminton season was quite short this term as it was sandwiched between a long spring breal< and track. The 
turnout for both the grade 6/7 ISA team and the grade 8 team was extremely good, and it was a real pleasure for the 
coaches, Mr. Alford and Mr. Floyd, to see so many students interested in participating. After a bnef set of practices, 
members of the 6/7 team travelled to St. Patrick's School for some additional competition. A group of grade 8's joined 
up with members of the senior school team, coached by Mr. Peter Gardiner, for training sessions with Anil Kaul, a 
local coach and member of Canada's Olympic Badminton team. These students showed significant improvements 
in their level of skill and game strategy. The tournament week (ISA and Victoria City Junior Secondary) took place 
at the end of April and the first week of May. Both the ISA and the Gr. 8 teams acquitted themselves well, with wins 
and places in almost all categories entered.

The girls' volleyball team had a gruel- 
ling schedule of 32 games over the 
course of 6 weeks. Though we had a 
bit of a slow start, the team started 
working together and combining on 
some spectacular plays late in the 
season. By the end of our round-robin 
regular games, we had accumulated a 
respectable 1 1 wins against some very 
strong opposition. Congratulations, 
and many thanks for a well-played 
season, ladies!

We had a tremendous turnout with close to 30 girls eager to play volleyball. We were fortunate to have balls for 
everyone, and practice sessions focused on skill development and an introduction to the game. Unfortunately the 
league play for this age group is very limited, and so we had very few weekly games. The grade 7 girls were given 
priority in the league, and in most cases two teams were able to play. A tournament in Vancouver 
and the final league tournament provided many opportunities for all girls to play and experience 
the emotions of competition. The girls' skills improved over the season and much fun was had by

Bright and early one late October morning, the boys U-1 3 soccer team, accompanied by coaches Mr. Evan Jones, 
Mr. Don Pollock, and parent, Mr, Steve Martin, left Victoria for the Canadian Independent Schools Invitational Soccer 
Tournament, hosted this year by Ashbury College in Ottawa. Having just clinched the VISAA elementary soccer 
championship with an undefeated season and having earned a 3-3 tie with a talented team from Hazelwood School, 
England, the SMUS boys were pnmed for an exciting week of touring and soccer in Eastern Canada. 

During the course of the week long stay, the team visited Toronto where they were billeted by St. Andrews College 
in Aurora, Ontario, Highlights were, most definitely, going up the CN tower, watching the Toronto Raptors practice 
at the Skydome while we ate lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, and, of course, a tour of the Hockey Hall of Fame. 
After a four hour train nde to Ottawa, the boys met their billets at Ashbury and Fraser Lee, one of two Grade VI boys 
on the team, courageously volunteered to stay with an Ashbury family on his own. (All other boys were billeted in 
pairs or triples!) The next day was a busy one indeed! The sights of Old Town Ottawa, a tour of the Parliament 
buildings (including a meeting with Victoria MP David Anderson) and a visit to the Heart Institute were the highlights 
of a busy day! 

Although SMUS won one, lost one, and tied one game on opening day, the boys managed to reorganize and 
revitalize to go undefeated on the second day winning all three games. On Saturday, the team lost a close 2-1 
decision to St. Andrews College and finished the tour with a 4-2-1 record. 

All in all, the season proved to be a most successful one. Leadership was well provided by captains Matt Lemay 
and Mike Pyke and both Justin Binab and Matt Woodland were recognized for their outstanding performances at the 
tournament. The greatest success, however, came with the dignified, mature manner in which they represented our

We had an enthusiastic group of grade 6 and 7 students this season. Practices 
were held twice a week and good weather resulted in some good games. The 
team was strengthened by four members of the U-1 3 squad when they returned 
from Ontario. After the league games we hosted the ISA Tournament on Oct. 
17th. It was a 5-day tournament and the team was successful in the morning. 
Unfortunately strong winds forced cancellation after lunch. 




Under 15 Girls Soccer 

On Tuesday, October 1st, fifteen excited soccer players from grades 7-9 and two Middle School teachers set off for 
Montreal to take part in the Canadian Independent Schools Junior Soccer Tournament, which was to be hosted by five 
private schools in Montreal. We hired a bus for the morning, which enabled us to view; albeit briefly, some of the notable 
and historic sites of the city: I'Oratoire St. Joseph, Mount Royal, McGill 
University. A guided tour of the Centre Molson, the new home of the Montreal 
Canadians, was next on the itinerary, and to our surprise and delight the team 
came out to practise while we were there. Lunch at a French restaurant was 
followed by a guided tour of "Vieux Montreal" where we were fascinated to 
discover the history and to step back in time: quaint cobbled streets, centuries- 
old stonebuildings, the beautiful Basilica and the chapel Bons-Secours. 

Thursday was the first day of the soccer tournament and fifteen SMUS 
girls had their hearts set on the unthinkable: winning back-to-back cham- 
pionships. A variety of weather conditions and playing their opening three 
games on a heavily used community field dampened their early enthusiasm. 
At the day's end, however, SMUS was undefeated having beaten Ambrae 
Academy, Sacred Heart School of Montreal and a very talented St. 
Mildred's Lightbourn School. 

Day two of competition had the SMUS girls playing on Lower Canada 
College's playing fields and the weather being kinder. Victories over 
Hillfield-Strathallen, Centennial Academy, and Country Day School meant 
that we were through to the championship semi-finals and, as yet, 

Saint John's Ravenscourt forced the SMUS girls to work hard but when the 
dust had settled, we were through to the finals with a 3-1 victory. We were not surprised to learn that our opponent would 
be St. Mildred's-Lightbourn. For forty minutes we looked to be in complete control and at one time held a 3 to 1 lead that 
vanished with ten minutes remaining and the score now 3 to 2. With only moments left to go in the contest, the referee 
awarded St. Mildred's-Lightbourn a penalty shot. The shot was well struck and true but Diana, our goalie, dove and stopped 
the ball on the goal line. As she stood up to volley the ball downfield, the referee blew the final whistle and, St. Michaels 
University School were again, CAIS Champions!

This year's season was short, busy and successful. The regular season play with the other Victoria independent 

schools proved to be our best opportunities for the development of a team strategy and familiarization with the 

fundamentals of the game. We attempted to provide everyone with exposure to a variety of 

positions in game situations and worked on skill development and fitness. The girls responded 

extremely well and although our win/loss record was fairly even, it was clear that the team was 

coming together as a unit. In the final tournament the girls went undefeated through to the final 

championship game in which they played a team that had dominated regular season play. Both 

teams played superbly and SMUS managed to score a goal and hold a powerful opponent to 55 

two. Congratulations to the many girls who contributed to the year's success! S. Alford (coach)

Despite a very short season, this group of students developed basic skills and an understanding of the game 
quite quickly. Our season consisted of a half dozen practices, two exhibition matches with GNS and 
culminated with the ISA tournament in Vancouver. We lost our two matches with GNS but they provided us 
with invaluable experience that we used to great advantage in Vancouver where we played exceptionally 
jwell. In the ISA tournament every player played in every game to maximize their learning and in the finals 
]We lost to a very talented St. George's team. Our boys have now laid the foundation for next year's Warriors.

This year's team consisted of sixteen enthusiastic boys who played several games locally, went to Vancouver and 
were in two tournaments. All players were guaranteed at least one quarter of play in every game and we had a most 
enjoyable season. Our final tournament at PCS was where we played best. We won four out of five games and lost 
the one game by a single point. This team should provide the school with fine prospects for next year when they reach 
grade seven and, best of all, they were fine representatives of their school.

We Started off the year with 8 girls who had never played together before. 
Through hard work and commitment the girls gelled early into a highly competitive 
unit. Rising above expectations, the team charged onto the city playoffs where they 
played with heart and determination. It was an extremely successful season, and 
I am proud of the high level of skill each team member achieved. 


Our swim team enjoyed its usual success at the pool again this year with some excellent results 
at the VISAA, ISA, and elementary school meets. Once again our early morning practices proved 
fruitful with approximately 35 swimmers taking part on a regular basis. Thanks to all those involved 
for your commitment to the early mornings and your effort. 


Unglamourous...true; mucky. ..true; hard work. ..definitely; personal bests. ..absolutely. That 
pretty much sums up the grade 8 cross-country season this year. Great commitment from a small, 
but talented group of grade 6/7 and 8 students who trained on a regular basis and slogged it out 
through some of the toughest courses during some of the ugliest weather we have experienced. 
Congratulations to all those who took part. It was a great year.

The spring field hockey season is shorl and sweet, but we had a very enthusiastic group 
of girls and boys play over a 5-week period. The team played great and improved a 
tremendous amount. We had our fair share in the win/loss column and wound up the 
season with a great afternoon of games at Lansdowne. The number of teams in the 
league continues to grow, therefore, the level of play is rapidly improving which is very 
exciting. Thanks to all those athletes who came out and played for the squad.

The Ballad of the Snowball Fight 

My brother and I were out in the snow, 
We were laughing and smiling, our eyes all aglow. 
The thermometer's reading had dropped down to low, 
And I looked on brave at my brotherly foe. 

Before I could think, a snowball was zooming 
Straight at my face at incredible pace. 
I raised up my hand with its burden of snow -- 
I aimed at my rival and I let it go. 

My brother struck back with a rocky ice ball: 
The force of the sphere, it drove me to fall. 
I felt myself crash down innumerable mountains, 
And drown in the ice of half-frozen fountains. 

The pain of the shock throbbed through my head 
And it lingered like hot molten lead. 
When I opened my eyes I was in bright sunlight, 
Maybe I'd dreamed the snowball fight. . .

Under the water, the deep blue sea 

the deep dark black is surrounding me 

As I look to my left... What a glorious sight 

The Titanic stares up at me with all of its might 

It's so boring down here, its been so long 

They said I'd never sink, I guess they were wrong 

I see a human, oh, how I let them down 

That stupid iceburg made me drown 

I have only seven legs, and I should have eight 
for the human that hurt me, I shall patiently wait 

When I see him shiver, I have fear and hate 
I know the next time I see him I will reach my fate 

The human in the Titanic 

The octopus in panic 

The ship is now a battle ground 

The seven legs, await the round 

They go forth into war 

While the fear of death, knocks on each door 

Two arms meet with seven 

Now they both are in heaven

Love is like the ocean 
When you start out on the shore 
You're too afraid to go in 
Scared of what might happen 
Scared of the unknown. 

Start in tentatively 

Small baby steps at a time 

Let the wet sand squish between your toes 

And the water swirl around your ankles. 

On some days 

The ocean will feel deliciously cool 

Others will feel the 

Salty water sting their wounds. 

The deeper you wade in 

The harder it is to swim 

Back to the warm security of the sands. 

Sometimes you will drown in love 
Or maybe you will 
Lose yourself in it. 

Love has tricks 
It also holds power 
Love is scary 
Love is you.

Bolts of power fell from the sky, 
controlled by him,

The conductor's power went beyond, 
he was brewing a storm, 
or was a storm brewing?

A fiery torment, 

destructive as it is, 

the volcano bursting like 

a flower blooming 

the lava flowing like 

jam on ice cream. 

A fiery torrent of smoke 

and ash. It's destructive 

power roaring across miles 

on end. Prepare for a shock 

prepare for a burst, 

you never know where it could 

end up next.

In the Park 

If you have the chance, 
go take a walk in the park, 
close your eyes and just listen. 

You'll hear the birds chirping, 
the river flowing and gushing, 
leaves fluttehng to the ground, 
the soft breeze whistling, 
the sounds of heaven. 

You really don't realize, 

how beautiful nature's sounds are, 

until you sit and listen.

A whirling force that spins 
A razor blade 

that shreds 
buildings apart

like a stampede of wild animals 
its black 
transparentable freaky skin 
it may be soft 
but its very 
powerful I!

Cool nice refreshing 

people are fishing 

Where the fish swim all day 

Where the dolphins like to play 

Where I'm free to roam 

Where I feel at home 

Where the vastness surrounds 

And life abounds 

Where the fishes swim in swarms 

And I feel nice and warm

Middle School Orchestra 

Middle School Music Report: 

Ou r young musicians in Grades 6, 7 and 8 have had another busy but successful year with many Inappy memories to recall. Our annual 
concert was this year held at the University Centre in February and featured the entire student body of S.M.U. Middle School in bands, 
string ensembles, choir and orchestra with special items by the "Scottish" Fiddlers and the "Three Little Maids". A rendition of Saint 
Saens' Carnival of the Animals was part of the concert programme.. 

Stage Band: Performances by members of the Stage Band included the Parents' Auxiliary Christmas Bazaar, the Alumni Dinner 
Dance in May and a visit to the Junior School together with the Grade 8 Advanced Band. In November, they visited the Univer- 
sity Centre to see Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass. 

Honour Band: The Band is preparing for the Music Festival season and a performance in Chapel following the orientation meeting 
for Grade 5 students and their parents. 

Concert Choir The Concert Choir boasted a membership of 97 students and performed at Chateau Victoria, Ocean Pointe Resort, 
the Carol Service and Prize Day at the Royal Theatre. Congratulations to all soloists who sang at these events. 
Theatre Visits: Our theatre visits this year included productions by both the Pacific Opera and the Victoria Operatic Society, and to 
round of the year a visit has been arranged to see the "Phantom of the Opera" in Vancouver. 

String Ensembles: The Grade 7s launched the performing season in the first term by playing at a Junior School assembly and at the 
Parents' Auxiliary Bazaar. In November, the cross-grade strings played pre-concert music at the MacPherson Theatre for a gala concert 
that included student performers from S.M.U. with the Victoria Symphony. The Grade 8 class performed at the Chateau Victoria Hotel 
and Ocean Pointe Resort. A cross-grade chamber group accompanied the choir at the Carol Sen/ice and performed a movement of 
Corelli's Christmas Concerto. The Grade 6 string class was asked to lead in a Tuesday morning Chapel Service. 
The study of Saint Saens' Carnival of the Animals . which was performed at the Concert Evening in the University Auditorium, 
incorporated student talent from the Art, French and English Departments of Middle School. 

At the end of February, the Lafayette Stnng Quarted spent a morning with the string students by performing for them and teaching them 
in small groups. 
In the third term, the string students are preparing for the Prize Day ceremonies as well as performances in the Music Festival in April.

Community Service 

A major focus at St. Michaels University iVIiddle School this year has been on community. This "sense 
of community" within the school, has made our students aware that respect and kindness, and dealing 
constructively with each others' differences is very important. 

We branched out to the Victoria community in October (through the Mustard Seed Food Bank) with 
our "Peanut Butter Blitz" and helped provide many school children with lunches. In December, our 
second project was "Clean Your Closet." The "Hill House" Women's Transition Organization and the 
Mustard Seed Street Church were ovenwhelmed by your generous support of clothing, toys, books, and 
sporting equipment. 

Our third project involved the "Big Brothers and Big Sisters" of Victoria. This organization provides a 
wonderful service to children and teenagers who live primarily in a one parent home where they 
desperately need a role model. They match a child with an adult who becomes involved as a friend and 
support person to help them experience a more positive side of life. 

The students contributed to"Big Brothers and Big Sisters" through proceeds from the Computer Club's 
fund-raising tournament, our March 14 Grub Day, and the St. Patrick's Day Fun Run. 

Many thanks to students and parents for your enthusiasm and commitment to our community service 
at St. Michaels University Middle School.

Mr. Peter Tongue 
Senior School Director 

Another action-packed year is racing to its conclusion, although, even after the end of a busy school year, activities will continue. For the first 
time. Mrs. Humphreys and her senior choir have been invited to participate as members of a mass Canadian Choir to perform in Carnegie Hall 
New Yort(. to celebrate July 1st. Such is the calibre of music in the school that invitations abound for our staff and students to be involved in 
Provincial and National competitions. Another first saw the senior jazz band nse to second spot in the National Jazz Festival held in Ottawa in 
May. as well as perfonning at several schools in Ontano. A highlight was a reciprocal visit to the Father Bressani High School. Woodbndge. 
Ontano. who brought a band, choir and rugby team to Victona in March, 

Once again, the B,C Honour Orchestra and choir were disproportionately represented by our students. For the second year running the school 
provided the concert master for the orchestra, this time in the capable musicianship of Taylor Rankin, We had our second school concerto 
concert highlighting Chns Smith and Enc Kim, two of our outstanding young musicians The music composers continue to grow in numbers and 
quality, and it was wonderful to see the full orchestra perform one of Michael Kwan's pieces on Pnze Day, The Composer's Evening was 
beautifully complemented by a display of the impressive grade twelve art work created this year. 

Unfortunately, the planned musical 'Grease' could not go ahead for copyright reasons, but the students showed tremendous resourcefulness 
and, under the dnving influence of Devon Hahn and Amy Slegg, put together their own Musical Revue of some of the show stopping numbers 
from musicals performed at the school over the last ten years. It was an unprecedented success. 

The grade twelve play, Shakespeare s A Midsummer Night's Dream', saw some wonderfully hammy performances, including Nick Stanger as BottonVPyramus, Joel Bowman as Snug/the iion, 
and Blair Nelson as a hilanous Flute/Thisbe. 

The intense, at times funny, at times tragic. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Next', was superbly performed by the grade elevens, with strong lead roles from Megan Volk as Nurse Patched and 
Chns Stolarski as McMurphy (Jack Nicholson's role). Other grade eleven plays were put on as lunch time theatre presentations and were much enjoyed by those in attendance. 

This has been one of the most successful sporting years in the school's history, and. in temis of Provincial performances, SMUS must be ranked f rst in the Province this year. The year began 
on a high note when the senior girls' field hockey squad repeated their impressive performance of last year in winning the Provincial Championship in Vancouver in early November This was 
an outstanding all-round team effort, and the girls' thoroughly deserved their success This was quickly followed by the Colts' Rugby squad winning the Island championship, with big wins 
against arch nvals Shawnigan Lake and Oak Bay, After Chnstmas, the junior boys' (grade nine and ten) basketball team swept all before them on the Island and went on to win the unofficial 
provincial championship The school year then finished on a high note with grade nine student Natalie Lisinski winning a silver medal in the Provincial Senior High Jump Championship (only 
the second medalist the school has ever had) and the senior rugby squad proving successful in winning the Provincials Few gave this team a chance. Seeded third, we required victories on 
successive days against Oak Bay (6th), Lord Byng (2nd) and Shawnigan {1st) , Captain Ed Fairtiurst led a determined, first time tackling team to victory. Other Provincial playoff performances 
of excellent quality 

were provided by the senior boys' soccer, senior girls' basketball.senior boys' cross-country, badminton, tennis and senior girls' soccer teams. Congratulations to Female Athlete of the Year 
Deanne Age, who has won a full scholarship to attend the University of Alaska and play basketball. Other sports in the school continue to fiourish.including cycling and cricket, while ten pin 
bowling has become a very popular and successful intramural activity 

Once again, the senior school prize day and graduaton ceremonies were amalgamated and this year were held at the University of Victona Auditonum Centre, The major pnze winners were 
rewarded for years of commitment and excellent contributions to the school. 

The premier award, the Ker Cup, was won by Patrick Gill, an extraordinary young man who featured in the National ranking in three different academic areas: mathematics, physics and 
chemistry A wonderful musician and prolific composer, Patnck was central to the success of the jazz band on his melodic trombone. He also managed to find time to perform on behalf of the 
senior boys provincial cross-country team. 

Kathryn Wynn was the leader of the grade, expending enomnous time and effort on b)ehalf of the grad class: she was a worthy winner of the Bnan Dyer Award for community sen/ice inside the 

A new award this year, the Dartene McCue Award', also went to a most deserving young lady, Andrea Horsman is the first winner of this Award for building bndges between diverse groups 
within our community. 

The John Nation Bowl goes to the student who serves the community in such a way that you would want this person as a next door neighbour -this year. Van Mak, This talented young lady 
has led the jazz band vocals, and her warm hearted nature has raised the spints of all who come in contact with her. 

The Groos Salver goes to the student who has put in the most significant contribution to community service outside the school, Ufer Robin Featherstone has done a fantastic job tjoth outside 
and inside the school. Talented, detennined and caring, Robin'scontnbution has been enormous. 

It is pertiaps fitting that Robin should receive this award after twelve committed years to the school at the same time that father Grenfell has decided to retire from teaching. Grenfell, a larger 
than life character who has entertained, educated and inspired young men and women over the last twenty years will be sorely missed at the school and will never be replaced. I know that he 
is pleased to have finished marking the last of his thousands of red ink covered essays, but I also know that he will miss the aspects of the school that enable the students to show their talent, 
creativity and character. Our very best wishes go with Grenfell in his retirement from the school, and our thanks for many happy hours listening to his intelligent and insightfijl discourses. 

This school year began on a sad note when veteran campaigner Commander Douglas Williams died suddenly of a stroke in late Septemtaer, There will be other tnbutes made to Douglas in 
this Yearbook, but I did want to recognize the outstanding contnbution that "Uncle Willy" made to the school. In the latter years he was first and foremost a trend and counsellor to the staff and 
students, and he will be missed by all of us. 

Looking fonward to the new year, I am confident that we have outstanding leadership and talent in the school. The new student leaders, Jenny Reed and Chns Stolarski, have strong support 
and considerable abilities around them in the new grad class and their prefect body. 

We look forward to the amval of our new Director of Academics, DrTom Matthews, who will ensure that the academic side of the school retains its prominent position, as well as wori<ing further 
to guarantee that all of our students obtain excellent teaching. It will be a good year.

The valedictory address is traditionally a farewell to the graduating class^ However, I refuse to say goodbye because this is not the end of the 
class of '97. Although we will disperse to the corners of the world, our class will not be disbanded: only altered. Connections will always keep us part of 
grad '97. We have built friendships which will extend across the world and last our lifetimes. As well as giving us an exceptional education, SMU has given 
us connections around the world. 

In his poem "A Valediction Forbidding Mourning ", John Donne compares the parting of two people in love to gold being beaten to an airy thinness: 
expanding, but not breaking. The grad class is also like a piece of gold that will be beaten by the hammers of time until we will wrap around the world. And 
everywhere we go, we will take with us the glitter of gold. Like Gold, we will continue to shine wherever we go: and we will be identified as graduates of SMU's 
class of '97 just as gold foil can be identified as gold. 

We did not become gold on our own, however, I think I speak for the whole class of '97 when I say that the instruction we have been given has 
been first rate. We would like to thank the faculty at the school for their hard work. One of the school's great strengths is the fact that our teachers truly 
care about their subjects. The music, art and drama teachers give us opportunity to create, as well as perform. The English faculty teach us to live well 
and think clearly. The Math and P.E. teachers show a gargantuan enthusiasm for their subjects. The science and second language teachers constantly 
enrich the material given to us to the point where provincial exams seem trivial. The supreme quality of instruction at the school is a testament to the 
dedication of the staff and the wisdom of our leaders. 

There is a group of people whose contribution to the school merits special recognition. These people must work with irate teachers, organise 
events and occasionally even stay up into the wee hours of the night doing extra work. Obviously, I refer to the students. To state the obvious, the co-operation 
of the students is key in any school. My fellow classmates have an enthusiasm for the material which renders classes enjoyable. Also, the students contribute 
to the overall character of the school more than any other group. They come from all over the world, and each contributes to the school in their own unique 
way. The numerous and prestigious successes earned by our artists, scholars and athletes are a reflection not only of the quality of instruction at SMU. 
but of the raw material our teachers have to work with. 

To those students not graduating this year, I would like to remind you of the colossal opportunity available at this school. You attend a school 
where you may participate in a myriad of activities, from music composition to scuba diving to meditation. Do not put off your dreams until after high school. 
You have the chance to follow your dreams right now. Take that chance. 

To the grads. I would like to leave you with an analogy. If life is like music, that music is jazz. We find ourselves on stage in front of the whole 
world, who we may acknowledge or not: and we are in a position to play if we want. We are given no sheet music: the whole thing is improvised. The song 
has no name. It has been playing before we arrive, and will continue playing after we are gone. The footlights are bright, so we have no hope of seeing 
our whole audience. We all have stage fright. We can. however, take heart in the fact that the audience has no idea what the song is supposed to sound 
like and that they are jazz musicians themselves. When our turn comes, we harmonise with our friends and trade fours with our rivals. We hope to sound 
good, but there is no real way of hearing ourselves properly. Some of us enjoy the performance: others bitterly complain. As in life, the happiest improvisers 
are not those who play the best, but the ones who appreciate the music most. They enjoy the music without feeling the need to compare their playing with 
others, as they know there can be no absolute comparison. Life defies criticism, but is conducive to appreciation. 

There is a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon I remember in which Calvin brings a snowflake into the classroom for show and tell and says: 

Did you ever notice how a snowflake, an utterly unique and exquisite crystal, turns into a boring molecule of water the minute you bring 
it in the classroom? Now, while the analogy sinks in, I'm going to leave you drips and go play outside. 

In one way, our school is like a moist deep-freeze. SMU has allowed us to crystallise further by offering opportunities to develop ourselves without 
melting the snowflake it was given, 

I speak for the whole class when I say I have mixed feelings about graduating. Many of you I will never see again. Many of my casual friendships 
will melt away. I want you to know that you will always have a place in my heart and I will miss you. The mixed feelings come from the tremendous excitement 
M stepping out into the world after having received an empowering education. We've made it, Grad '97. The world is out there waiting for us. Let's go get

"He has guarded the Chapel with his life, and somewhere in there 
today, he will be brandishing his walking stick in one hand and with his other f 
he will be shouting "Yaberdabber Doo! Have a great life- 'cause I did." 

Peter Tongue 

"/ doubt that I'll ever be able to forget my friend Commcmder Williams. Since grade nine, 
when I first came to SMUS as a boarder, he had helped and encouraged me not only in 
studying French, but also in so many other aspects of my life. He soon became a close friend 
of mine and I value every moment that I had spent with him. Whenever I need to laugh or 
smile, I simply think of all of his funny remarks and curious little habits, whether it was 
drawing me pictures to reward me for good work or hearing him across the quad yelling 
"Yabadabadool Meny Christmas!!", even though it would be the middle of May. Most of 
all, he always had a way of cheering me up when I needed it. He had such a great sense of 
humour, yet when he wanted to he could act seriously, like the Commander that he was. I feel 
very fortunate that I had the chance to come to know Commander Williams and I only regret 
that others didn 't have the same opportunity. I know that he cared for all of his students 
although he may have had different ways of showing it. Commcmder Williams always had 
a way of constantly giving me words of advice by disguising them in our conversations. 
Whenever I beccune frustrated or confused over French, he became intolerant reminding 
me that he considered me a top student in French, so the best was expected from me. At 
least every other class he would sit down with me and stare me straight in the eye and say, 
'^Courtenay, I want you to know that if you ever have any problems - cmy problems at all - 
you can just come talk to your Uncle Willy." He taught me to believe in myself and not 
doubt my ability and I know that his encouragement has contributed to all of my personal 
goals. He has left me with not only wondeifid memories and laughs, but also with a 
determination to do well at whatever I t)y and to dare myself into achieving beyond what I 
expect. Although my heart tells me to grieve for him, I realise that it is selfish to feel any 
regret on his behalf as he lived a truly fidl and productive life. And so with due respect to 
Commander Williams, my mentor and my friend, I look forward to the day that we meet 
again. II y etait et il y aura qu 'un seul Uncle Willy."

"I went to school one day with a terrible cold. I had tutorial with the Commander, and he 
was appalled by my condition. Sitting beside me, almost shouting, he said "Comrie, if 
there's one thing I learned in the War, I learned that it is sometimes better to make a 
tactical withdrawl. Return to base, regroup the troops, get a rest, form a new game plan, 
and commence the offensive the next day. I submit that you are in such a position. You go 
home at once. Fll take care of the paperwork. Go."

Geoffrey Adams 

Well, it had to happen I'm finally graduating 18 years have passed since I was born and the doctors said "Those pain killers won't have 
affected your baby at all." Shows what they know. Well, graduating is pretty cool, Tm taking the courses I like and I have lots of spares. If 
school had always been like, I would never want to leave So, Have I achieved anything in my five years at SMU'r' Not really I've been to one 
party that didn't involve the singing of Happy Birthday, and was unimpressed. I've never been on a date. I haven't walked a mile in another 
mans shoes and I don't think I've walked a mile in my own shoes either Sad. Well, enough dwelling on my pitiful existence, I'd better get on 
with the stereotypical recounting of events that are only humorous to those who saw them KC, your endless taunting of My Duckys and 
swoopy hair will be remembered, I have no doubt you have laid the ground work for deep psychological scars that will take decades of 
therapy to work out, KBarnes, In grade 1 1 I drove you home from school on a daily basis, this year we went for the commute to school in the 
mornings. We've seen Weird Al and SWSE and I think It's just about the most fun I've had in the past five years. KBourne, There really isn't 
anything more fun then hiding behind Challoner, skipping another 2400 run is there '^ BB, you've nearly made me laugh out loud at the most 
inappropriate times in English Lit, I'm just happy you didn't get me kicked out of class Scott, The truth is out there, and it's got PEMC written 
all over it. Well, nothing left except to insult some teachers and class mates. Hey Cam. Madagascar's a fabulous place, Island ya'know. Hey, 
IS that a bowling bowl in a hula skirfi* nope, just a pnmate. my mistake. Anyhow, now that the last remaining days of my school year have 
been made awkward I'll leave you ail with some words of wisdom ,, "Thank-you drive through'

Stephanie Anderson 

I came to SMUS in grade 8 with Melissa from St. Pat's. I have some great memories including our beginner band class 
(yellow bird), the BTB group, the grand canyon, lovely violin concerts, singing LM, funky nailpolish, the po-po are creepin', 
Apollo & Dionysus, out of control skiing and New York to come. Thanks to all my friends who contributed to those 
memories. Another big thank you goes to my supportive parents and teachers and also to Suzanne and Damans, my 
longtime friends. I wish all of grad '97 the best in the future. 


Peter Andrachuk 


Peter has been the pride of SMUS for the last four years Being a model student was never much of a challenge for Peter Peter is a 
natural leader and a gifted athlete, Peter's position has made him a great favourite with the rugby team. N/lany people have been afraid 

of Peter because of his imposing figure, but for those who looked beyond his manly image 

Okay, now for the _real_ stuff: 
Well. I have spent 4 years at SMUS, and loved them I have made many close friends along the way. or so I try and tell myself ;). I 

absolutely hate using initials, so here goes Bianca, what can I say? We will always be fnends, "Quickly F.H., to the Queer-Mobile!". 

Sleep-overs, Ab-Fab late into the night: "Sweetie, sweetie make mummy a cup of coffee!". Cruising in the Queer-Mobile, Our Jays! 

Amber: Never forget those Julius runs, cowgirl! Jacki: Pick up gas station attendants much? Robyn: Don't overheat the 

VISA!! Sharon: Motheri''! Mitz: Let's not ever go to dinner with B and Chad again!. .Robin: "The Eagle has landed!".. -Charlotte, Jen 

A . All S,, Carol L,: Im with the DJ. okay? Hoochies forever! .. Devon. Chrissy: I should have listened to your advice about Girl- 
Boy All: 2 schools? You can be my 2 schools, baby! Memones: Pumpkin thieving, poop-deck. "You silly monkey", Whatever, Cam 

the DJ. cell phone nnging in geology. Ms. Greer's smarties, I'm not addicted to iced tea!. "Is Harrod's nnging''", Car rallies (AN running 
naked along the causeway). Mr, Cameron's Spanish class (learning useful phrases such as "El tiene una naranga jugosa"), "These 
aren't Versace! ", "Becky Taylor, what are you weanng? Three inches'!", uncoordinated Grease rehearsals, being a designated dhver for 
_everything_, crazy Mexican students, ski tnps: I will pay you 5 bucks to close the window'. Brown Hall, hero worship (Eva Durate de 
Peron), shrine to J., shopping dunng spares, laptop notes. Thanks everyone for making this such a great 4 years at SMUS' I love you 
all! Remember: Always be open minded and accepting. Love is more than an emotion, it is a way of life! What else can I say? I wish 
everyone happiness in their lives. Good-bye dahlings! 

Devin Arnold 

Descending from the barren arctic wasteland of Yellowknife, Devin entered grade 8 as a cowering little child who spent his time squawking like a parrot, drooling 
over a cerlain female, and generally trying to adapt himself to SMU life It took his brain a while to defrost from the cold Yellowknife winters, but K.W. certainly 
helped by aggravating him a lot. Along the way, he gathered many fond memories, and )ust as many nicknames The fondest of the fond include being voted 
"cutest guy in gr. 9", the "baddy corner" - including the illustrious undenfl/ear foozball game versus R.F. and S I., his psychic mother reading the auras of his 
fnends. and the ever-growing list of people to kill His cacophony of nicknames includes "Speedbaby", "Sprocket" , "Parrot". "Kevin", "Mr Amold", and, of course. 
the infamous "Scrotes" He didn't smash any sports records (though he is quite an enthusiastic cricket player), but he does have the notorious accomplishment 
of drinking over twice his body weight m Slurpees, and consuming one McDonald's chicken fajita for every day of August He will be remembered for many 
things, not the least of which is his fetish for 14 year old girls in crotch-length sailor suits waving magical wands not that that's a bad thing or anything Devin is 
still unsure about what the future holds for him (although we could call his mom and find out), but some of his ambitions include To get his bachelor's degree in 
telepathy, to convince the feline species to accept him as one of their own, to somehow make it through life without ever having a real job. to marry Sailor Moon. 
and to be the first man to set toot on Mars Whatever he does and wherever he goes, we are all sure he will still be cowenng, still have a file with the FBI. still be 
collecting Sailor Moon memorabilia, still be drooling over the same female, and will always be a slacker He wishes everyone the best in whatever they end up 
doing To those of you who were kind to him, he will remember you when he is rich, and to those of you who pissed him off - watch your backs. You're on nhe 
list", and he'll be coming for you .

Coille Atchley 

I started at go in '95 and when the light turned green I was ott at full tilt, that was until VY hit a red light, and I promise you that it was. 
The country roads caused some problems for AC and the YJ, "Hey was the a curb you just hif". Over the barners and past the sucunty 
guards BB and I wandered aimlessly until we found double A hotseat and the cncket pitch. The fredly hill was visited all to frequently, but 
sadly never spun for me ,,, I took a small detour to see some green "Yall run back to your cars now". Then I landed on a chance and 
went straight to jail were I faced Heaven and Planet rejection. But soon enough I hit a straight stretch which took me right to Holland KR 
look Its the forest with three trees, SNUPYAS' I rounded a bend which led to the BV gravel roads, and the powerline trails, I still sport the 
scar from the deadly ski pole, and once there was a white YJ ABRAKADABRA its black. We thought we were smart, but we took a wrong 
turn from Boardwalk to the Cutblock KR you will always look like a troll to me, signing off Brat #1. Gill and IVIeg thank you for taking down 
some the barners before I collided head on with them, tvlom thank you for your unconditional support and I promise I will nde at H/lilner 
again because it will be a part of my life forever. Dad you showed me that there isn't a day that passes that you don't learn something 
and I am greatfull for that One day went your not looking I will wander from the trough, but until then SHLURP .. 
JD.BB.TB.VY.AC.RG.KW.KK, DA.GG.MP.EC.I^D.SH thanks for making my road trip full of memories.

Tina Barrett 

Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Tina. She came from a far away magic land called Logan Lakenolndonesia. She came to a 
castle ( NORSIRP) named SMU. where she and her stepsister slaved for many wicked stepmothers. One day. Tina escaped to a ball: 
disguised as a devil she met her Pnnce Charming That night Rapunzel let down her knotted hair and her and her stepsister shimmied 
away from her second floor window. Her second year was filled with new expenances and duties, for no longer a servant. Tina was a 
prefect. The next year was also filled with fames, country singing, cocktails, and long castle duty nights but so far she's lived happily ever 
after,,," Tina. Babe I don't know what I'd do without you. so many memones to never forget, never change T&B 4ever, Becks 
Times I'll never forget: "P" Internet men wanting more,,, Fnday Nights (el,), throwing rocks at sleeping men, late night chats, and Shania 
Twain ,,,{j.dh) rocked skating, chapel confrontations, every night movie nights and the stick shift (cr). 9:00 shots, underwear faines and 
shimmying sheets and dr'nken V-days and too much more... (b.b.). 2hours in Denny's,,, do you guys remember the dance?... I don't, 
silent sips (j.f). Iimo night, rooming with crazy Andrea and her many men. Calc w/ m.j. XOnTheBeach. Miss. PersonalityLESS. "Please

(m.d.) Milli Vanilli two, fuzzy wuzzy carpet ads ( Gilligan's lsle(CR'96). angel baby. Silver Star, "I will survive!", & endless b*tch*n' w/ 
Brig & Beck. I'd like to thank my friends who helped to make my two years here "home." Especially, b.b,e.l.,c.r., m.d., j.dh. , c.a.X2, j.f.., k.w., 
m,t,,a.s. and b.h., "WE Survived !!" (Jacks & Heather ...if only...???)

Robert Bateman 

I wasn't sure what was more appropriate: "It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do." 
(Jerome K. Jerome), or "It is almost Impossible to over-estimate the unimportance of most things." (anonymous), or maybe 
even "I always have a quotation for everything - it saves ohginal thinking." (Dorothy L. Sayers). 

Rebecca Bazzard 

Becky came to SMU a hard core islander Irom Sdllsprmg The pretty but supnsingly tough islander quickly became as M T said '|ust one of the guys ' She s picked up a 

quirky mix of friends, nearly all whom she's loved dearly The next School Ties (and most likely everyone hereafter) will no doubt feature Becky on the cover lor she is the

"A little learning is a dangerous thing" A. Pope. Surprisingly enough, I survived five LONG years. 
Grade 8 was full of craziness; T.S.. J.S., and E.H. Cecilia made my grade nine year! What hap-

don't forget to buy me a car when you're making 7 digits. Bo-Jo continues his reign of terror. Late 
nights of pasta and wine with M.P. and K.P. will not be forgotten. R.B., maybe diving or water skiing 
sometime, next Christmas? Rock 'n' Bowl with J.D. Thanks to all of my friends for everything. 

Sean Carrie 

With an insanity bred in him by years of being a Red Sox fan (not to mention incidents such as Buckner's error in 

the '86 series), and, laugh as you will, as a proud ex-Calgarian, Sean came to the school in grade 10 and immediately felt at 

home among the likes of Sarah Inouye, Simon Grant, etal. With events such as the tnumph of the Harlem Pancakes and the 

unexplained disappearance of Dr, Beach fresh in mind, he set off to live in Tokyo for not nearly long enough and became a 

Pokka coffee addicted Japanophile, Sean begrudgingly wended his way back to our barbaric continent and again settled into a 

less interesting life, punctuated by events such as the Swift, hiking, hiking, sleep shifts in Physics (Jupe got the short end of the 

Eunuch), and more hiking. For all his amazing friends here, plus the Mooth, a quote from Chuang-tse: One day, Chuang-tse 

was sitting by the banks of the P'u river when he was approached by two representatives of the pnnce of Ch'u. who offered him 

a position at court. Chuang-tse sat expressionless, watching the river as though he had not heard. Finally, he spoke: "I am told 

that the prince has a sacred tortoise, over two thousand years old. wrapped in silk." "That is true", the officials replied. "If the 

tortoise had been given a choice", Chuang-tse continued, 'do you think he would have preferred to be alive in the mud, or dead 

within the palace?" "To have been alive in the mud. of course", said the men. Without hesitation. Chuang-tse replied: "I too 

prefer the mud, good-bye". 
Stick with the mud.

Alisa Cooper 


Over the river and through the woods, I trekked my way and landed at SMU in 1994. From the unknown of Kitimat as the Kitimat Wamor, I lasted 
through the beats and waterfights to eventually see the end of the trail. With Rachel as my guide, I made it through Science 10. Robin's party, and 
obtained the power of the water weenie. My joumey was made even better with the encounter of 'Ihe gang". Dee, Stonze and Robin. Another 
year deeper in the forest, Andrea and her remedies I was off! October rolled around and I encountered a steep hill conquered with Becky by my 
side With a raging nver over the edge, and a dead battery, sixteen candles was celebrated at the top of the infamous hill. From then on the days 
of "I don't want to go to Physics!", Camie, pool, Mission:lmpossible, and was concluded with the hotseat of 314. The New Year rolled in and out 
with the adventures in Richmond and that "other"' jeep. While Seattle chats. Oklahoma hoedown, water towers, the hawk, dance parties in 307, 
and the Metchosin adventure completed the second leg of the trek As the heat rolled in . so did the hats of Willie's puddle, seedoos, and the power 
of the leep. The end of the trail is near, but will never be forgotten with my crew(JC, LW. AH. MD), "In true greatness, we are never fully prepared", 
Jen and I making History ourselves, planet reiections. and that ■^A/hlte " explorer. As my great adventure is almost complete. I would like to thank 
some very important people who helped me through some of the more difficult parts of the path. Mum and Dad, without you I could not have made 
it without you and your support. Vanessa: our chats have meant the worid to me. What am I going to do without you next year^! Dee and Stonze. 
you have made my years here so great with all the laughs, I love you guys!!... JAM' Rachel and Andrea: long weekends, sleepovers, you are the 
best! Collie. pro skier, skater/v-baller/b-baller/soccer ..what more can I say..You're tieautiful!! Jen,Ford..Big white here we come! Jenn,.bnng on the 
hugs!! To everyone else....aurevoir from tamitlK!

me the opportunity to live through these memories. And now. some thoughts to ponder. 

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it is made up of two separate words- 
mank" and "ind". What do these words mean? It is a mystery, and that's why so is mankind." -Jack Handey 

Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed, and maybe, in some small way, they will be 
acknowledged as the greatest worlds of genius created by man." -Jack Handey

Sendjaja Desember 

It has been a long three years at SMUS and the boarding house. Full of fun and sad experiences throughout the years. But after 
all, it IS almost the end of the high school life. We are all going to get a new life, a different life from now. Even though each of us 
has a different destination but we shall still remember each other, and in the next ten years hopefully we will have a wondrtui 
reunion of Grad '97. But it is still a long way to go. Whatever will happen in the future I will never forget what the teachers and 
friends have done for me. At last I will say good bye to everyone and best of luck to you all.

Edward Fairhurst 

Ed was released on SMU in grade 1 and was a good little boy until he discovered hormones. After this, he was thrust into a life of partying which 
also included the occasional use of blue, woolly scarves. Here are some of Ed's closest friends and how he'll remember them: Dicks and Stewy- 
Hey. let's go get BH. JU- Let's go see Freddy and SAD!(casual). AA- If the liquor store will take my dad's credit card, then we're in business, CL- 
You vveekzer!, PB- Ming sai po Empre HoteP, GG- How's it going MAN', JL- You can do whatever you want, as long as you clean up. MD- Hey

Robin in a fiesty blond who strives for the perfect hair cut. When she isn't squeezing her rubber carrot, or perfecting her 
Bielmann spin, Robin can be found doing tfie CHA-CHA at the Copacabana. Robin excels at throwing Lucky Charms wfiile 
in a sleeping bag coccoon, and attracting weirdos off the street. The Saucy Tots taught Mikey that suicide just isn't worth it 
and that MUDD does the brain some harm. At SilverStar. Robin spent a large part of the trip with the shower and the fan 
on. as well as teasing the boys in the hot tub, Robin's goal in life is to see how many people she can throw out of Durance 
Lake, and strives to be the MAPPIEST HAM ALIVE! Robin leaves the school saying "Bah. Nah, Tah".

A refugee from Lambi in the public school system I arrived in these hallowed halls in grade 1 1 and have never been the same since Alone and afraid I was 
quickly befriended by a talkative Greek boy who introduced me to a Polish scoundrel with indestructible hair Unavoidably I was corrupted in a matter of 
days, and the sweet, shy boy who had arrived at SMUS was no more Seeing that life at SMUS had the potential to be very bonng I quickly reacted joining 
a consortium of new students with similar anti-establishment tendencies Joined by an escaped circus performer who did his act in nghtfield in the 
summertime we went about making life more interesting In the fall I dnbbled a soccer ball down the field but it wasn't enough I decided to try my hand at 
bouncing a ball This led to three months of picking splinters out of my ass and a love for basketball that was to be short lived January to June were the 
black months, when a malevolent evil controlled my life with a spiked whip and will not be spoken of henceforth. In the intervening summer I pursued my 
professional baseball dream only to be thwarted by a malignant ankle As my Grade 12 year rolled about I possessed a new confidence and surety in my 
surroundings Also my old trend JB had escaped the clutches of Lambi and joined me Apparently he had quite a night of festivities, although I was there I 

don't quite remember , D D s employment at Kmart equaled discount pnces for our small clan, with their generosity rivalled only by the tuck shop's. 

Writing this in December I know that the best is yet to come, but it has already been fun Thanks to MP, for the putting up with me while I complain about 
my problems (your taste in music has rubbed off) D D -picture me rolling C M -don't lake the |oke too far J,\/ -i-GG-a couple of players, GT -whipped 
D S-we rule the soccer field, J B -you gotta team your limit. Thanks to all the people who've made my stay at SMU an enjoyable one and thanks to my 
parents for putting up with me.

Patrick Frisbv 

Well, it took seven long years of blood, sweat and tears, but I can finally declare with pride that I made it. Yes. I have learned hov, 

to tie my own tie. Thank you to all who believed In me. 

To be serious though. I could possibly do justice to all the events and all people involved in my strife at this school over the last 

seven years in this tiny write up. Thank you to my teachers for their understanding and support, and thanks to my friends for 

helping to create so many memories both bad and good. With that. I close and burn the book on my life at SMUS. 

Well. I'd like to thank my friends A.B.C and D for all the memories, see ya round E. F and G! Ever lend money to H. I. J, or K, 

you'll get it back (if you know what I mean). L. M and N are just crazy guys who will be missed, but not as much as O. P. Q. R and

Rachel Gardiner 

■Rachum' came to SMU in the first grade, the picture of innocence. She was quickly molded into the ideal smu student, 
and has vague recollections of chickens and snowball detentions with RF. She soon learnt the ways of the world in grade 
9 with her introduction to SMU cast parties. The last three years brought AC and AH which led to post dance traditions in 
Timmis and 3 am prefect meetings in 316. The honorary boarder has shown her talents as a musician, a devoted prefect 
(can I borrow your tie?) and as a defender on the first XI field hockey team. Known for her obsessions with jeeps, 
chocolate and the wrong pyjama pants, she is easily recognized by her "thinking face'. Rachel's many memories at smu 
will never die, especially: breaking the car(s)... bravo!. ..making statements with V... brass undies (Oklahoma). ..patience is a 
what?. ..the good the bad and the mikes. ..doesn't that music just make you want to dance?. .."I'm not saying a 
word!"...omniousoddness ...waterfights ...serenades ...cmos ...chem shots. ..talks with MP(both of you) and 
JD(clammy)...CA(my twin). ..and dreams of McGill with Mitz. Always remember, follow you instinct and live simple.

Hayley Gibson 

There is no way I could sum up 9 years at SMU in a paragraph, but these are some of my most memorable experiences : Washing chunks 
off a pillow at Cattle Point with ST and AJH. Devil's Crevice... The whack-the-tent incident on Piers with AJH. Craison tortellini. deep fried 
craisons. craisons with green eggs and ham ...( BB's favonte snacks). 007 giris with Jl and Rl. Finding various entertaining uses for 
mashed potatoes with Earson. STs minks-on-a-string. Would you rather... Escaping with AJH from the clutches of the dreaded n.h. 
Ruffles sour cream n onion chips on a comer with ST at 12:30 a.m. Ehab from rehab. Hand over the cookie recipe. Anita... Late night 
philosophical discussions with ST. The Emerald Isle. JC.why didn't you |ust jump over the wood pile, or walk around if Rumble from 
the top bunk in the ski lodge. Bass de hay-vever bills blease, JM. Pranks involving a wig. a doorstep, and a video camera. ELVIS. I have 
come out of my time at SMU with lots of good memories (and some bad ones) and only minor scarnng from an unfortunate paintball 
accident. There have been many people to help me out along the way including my two best fnends Sarah and Anita. Mr. Hams who got 
me going on math, and my mum and dad who are so supportive of everything I do. Thanks. My plans for the future include spending next 
year in France, taking over the family cranberry farming business, and practicing my birl. Best of luck to everyone! 

Patrick Gill 

In the end, all will be irrelevant, but do not weep: life is valuable for its content, for life itself. The bad will be a foil for the 
good. "Bad" and "good " are relative. The joy in life will come from perception itself, not from content. 
I came to SMU in grade seven. I was often perceived as being academic, but really I am just intense. I will remember 
chamomile tea. hobnobs and camping. I love music, nature and the persuit of truth. When I leave SMU. I won't play by the 
unwritten rules. 

A big thank you goes to all my friends who tolerate my insane ramblings and untempered idealism. 
It's a big world. Go get em!

dar1< bikinis, and Braveheart. I LUVE YU! I AWHAYS HAV! Devon (a.k.a. Demon), our little pomme de terre, can usually be found 
pampering and obsessing over her stuffed bear Muffy (who has alDOut a thousand little outfits). Shawnigan Lake is Demon's home away 
from home. Her favourite pastime is throwing Lucky Charms at the neighbors while flailing in her sleeping bag. THE POLICE ARE HEREi 
WE'RE IN FOR IT! Devon has been perfecting her Bielmann spin and she hopes to present it at the Grad dinner dance. SilverStar will 
never be the same without Demon and the staff of the Vance Creek Hotel are really going to miss her. HEY! IF WE TAKE OUT THIS 
PLASTIC BARRIER, WE CAN ROLL IN THE SNOW IN OUR BATHING SUITS! Devon spent lots of time eating on the last 
trip and watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The Umpa Lumpas still haunt Devon's dreams. But BOY oh BOY did 
she have a good time. Devon will one day have her own telethon but for now aspires to be THE MAPPIEST HAM ALIVE! 

Amber Hall «i«««iiiiiii^™««» 

Amber Lynnette Hall migrated to Victoria from Willy s Puddle at the beginning of grade 1 2. and has been waiting to leave ever since. Tfiis cowgirl has never 
quite gotten used to Victoria's year long drougfit. and feels more at home on a ranch with her wranglers and plenty of horses to nde! Now that she is eighteen 
her trips to Calgary have become much more frequent (wonder why"?!) In grade 1 1 there was the gomer patrol, and good stuff, which soon moved on to gomif, 
snarf and good deal when the patent wore out. Buibi, B-man and the Butthead moved on to happier grounds, and we are now left with the Bull Rider Then again 
there was that Blenz fellow, and good old whasis name from Johns place Our weekly runs ceased to exist when the mono hit. (step away from that van) Then, 
there was the ever so interesting paunch fixation, and the constant prayers that Domino's & Orange Julius would live forever (and move to V\/illiams Lake!) The 
Singia mobile peels oft as trends watch in horror ..thank good for holy '#'>& handles! The hysterical Forum calls will never be forgotten, followed by peas on 
the floor (cant you use a spoon'') Elevator music anyone^ Timmy's Telethon dunng choir years hold a special place in our hearts, not to mention hysterical 
symphony runs (101 dalmatians, anyone"?) Shuttling off to Buffalo was always a delight, and be sure to look out for that Rucky Rager! Then there were those 
tnends that we had until they decided that something better had come along (or they chose to impress the rugby team) May Dollys chnstmas album live forever 
in the hearts of all Timmis folk. Ma chere AG; as far as I'm concerned, the mustang was more than justified! Here's to the beer mug of life thafll always be 
brimming with the good stuff (just don't try giving it to your Dog!) Your ever uncoordinated friend , Mizel!

Yusuf Harsono 

Yusuf came to S.M.U in 1992 from Indonesia as a boarder with poor English. He settled in Symons house and quickly picked up his 
English skills as he quickly made a lots of fnends. However, he was a quiet boy until he met and became a roommate with FYMA in 
grade 10. He remembered the good time with JTB, SH, AY, CH, DL & DH in room #309 and #316 ie: partying at night such as playing 

cards, ordering pizza etc. 

Also he is going to miss activities with IT the tree. LL the itil man and to the Symons crew ( Cash, Fly, Moe, Si-Fu, Ah-Bae, FYMA, and

Michelle Hau 

Had I known the ominous sky of one September night of 1995 signalled the coming of "Little Mich"' (vlich's Destiny with SMU has 
already begun. Being Mark Haus (Grad '95) sister, she becomes quickly known and remembered by everyone. Tiny In size, better yet 
her enormous contribution at SMU makes her visible everywhere : Yearbook, Track and Field, Badminton, Band, Computer Lab, 
Biology Lab, Golf Course... As of her destiny, she meets SO who takes her as a nval in being "characteristic" (i.e. weird) yet humorous, 
Mich, being a very organized, keeps up getting high academic grades as well as being a all rounded student and consequentially has 
succeeded in being one of the most-liked prefect of Timmis House. Not only has she made so many friends, she manages to have 
"absolutely no enemy", - except when she momentarily arouses people's anger by cheenng <— > teasing people running 2400m. 
Finally, a personal appreciation from "you know who" for keeping good track of her (you know who) Guy h istory. It was worth "Choco- 
Ple"! Love ya forever and ever. 

Shingo Hirao 

Shingo came into SMU in Gr.8 as an intemational student from Japan His life at SMU was based on playing basketball and having fun 
with people. Although he was not a big Jap boy like Ryuske, he still made a basketball team for junior and senior team. He improved his 
skills by playing against the Onental players(Sam, Wayne, Mark. Spike). Shingo's big change at SMU was after the arnval of CHUMMY 
in 93'. Shingo became a bnght boy and also he became bad. Soon, he became a prefect party club along with Funk, Babe, Fly, Moe, 
Rob, and Si-foo. In the room 21 7 was always a great fun after the exam. Shingo really enjoyed being with his buddies from Symons 
House(Mamac, STATE, Hilo, Skeleton, Dan, and Charies), along with Ryota, Kulapat, Snowball, Chink giri. Captain, and Risa, He will 
never forget the buzzerbeaper, midnight cooking class, and the activity with Bowman. SAYONARA.

to Denmark with her agent to work on her modeling portfolio. She will be deariy missed and SMUS can and only hope that her influnce 
has planted the seed in which other SMUS stars will bloom. So as she leaves a trail of broken hearts and tearful goodbyes she can take 
comfort knowing that her legacy will remain immortalied within these hallways. Carys unfortunately has to single out an individual 
resonsible for her above achievments and aspirations, to my best friend B.S. I will keep a piece of you in me for the rest of 
my life!! Thank you. 

Martin Jung 

Martin came to SMUS in grade 9. Having experienced many tough times with strict boarding rules, he has learned many 
lessons from them. In addition, as time goes by he started to enjoy boarding life, and awarded as a boarding prefect. He will 
miss all of his Korean fnends especially YKL. SY. RS, ML, DH, JH and PK. Night basketball with SK, RY, SC, SH. IW. KS. 
DT, VL and activities with Seafood L. Cori L. SD, were his best times. Martin was lucky to have a good roommate like Mitz. 
along with KP who always comes every weekend for a party. Thanks to the staffs, SG, and MJ, who have taken care of 
Martin. Everything in SMUS will be missed by Martin except Brown Hall food.

Nicolas Jupe 

Nick (JUPeee) came to SMU as a dazed and confused seventh grader. He enjoyed the many new splendors a large town 

had to offer him. He also realized Victoria wasn't completely boring either. As the years passed (and S.G. grew more 

sarcastic and cynical) Nick grew up and eventually noticed J.J. was an idiot. Er hat lernen Deutsche, but soon he forgot all 

the grammar and most of the vocabulary. The best years were every year after grade nine. Thanks to B.B., D.D., H.P., G, 

M M.. AND B.S.. Remember Derek. H.L.Sam would want you to work on your plies and pirouettes. Now, in all my years here 

from Barrhead I've decided that the one thing you city folk are lacking is cow milking skills. So here is a quick lesson. 

I Grab the cow firmly at the top of the nipple just below the bulk of the udder. 

11. Squeeze and pull down in a firm but gentle motion. 

iii. If done right milk should be coming out of the base of the nipple. 

There yor go. enjoy! NOW GET LOST!!! 

Kristina Kerr

Kyra Kordoski 

Well what can I say about SMU? I've been here a whole three months, and it only feels like it's been three weeks. It's 
been good being here though. Thank you to everyone who made being the new girl actually a fun thing. Things I know I'm 
going to want to remember later in life: days at the Thetis, 4C, Tainted Love, the gorge. Dippy Skipping, Holly and the 
Sprokets, the Dockyard. Glanville the Turtle, the skatepark. Pothole Daughter, the Malibu, my times with Andy & Clif, 
canoeing to downtown (and getting stuck, lost, and wet on the way.) Mr. Dodds, Slurpee runs, trips to Vancouver and Mt. 
Washington, Cowichan Lake, LONG BEACH, and all the hours I 'wasted" just hanging out with my fnends (esp. Holly. 
Kristina. Sarah, Melinda, Zenna.) I had some awesome times in high school and I'm looking forward to having lots more at 
university, and all over this planet. Nancy and Bri - 1 hope you're with me. 

Michael Kwan 

Welcome to Mike Kwan's grad write-up! First, I would like to thank (in no paticular order) : AD for inspiring me musically. 
PG for adding a note of positive energy to each day. NB for joining me in my impulse to start fencing, CL for being there 
for so long, and NV for all those times especially with CS and KW.

Maria Kwari 

Our cute little (very little) "Cobweb" came to SMU at the ripe age of 5 and ever since that day on the steps of Barker Library where she 
met Sarah I her life was never the same, Maria's fellow lifers will remember her falling asleep on her first day of school; she has 
improved since then and can almost slay awake for a full day now Maria soon outgrew her tunic and Carebears and moved on to the 
middle school where she met her Fairy Friends, It was also at the middle school where she met her giant (well in companson to Maria) 
friend Keith aka Personal Assistant #1 and from then on the 4 am chats began. When Maria finally reached the senior school the party 
era with The Girls ' began, as Keith. Michelle & Kath can attest to after a long night on Salt Spring where SS. Player pulled into her 
port Maria will always be remembered for her pre-dance antics, although at limes her mouth should be washed out with soap. Always 
rememeber Hello Kitty White and Purple hair. Test Stress, A Certain Boy's Obsession, Mana Stones, Cheese Bread, Mercedes, Back- 
Seal Dnving Diamonds and Gold Oh yeah and to B L,: 'I did not cheat" We often gasp in bewilderment at the amount of words that 
Maria can fit in a few seconds, though I'm sure it will reflect the copious amount of experiences she will have from here on. 
To my girls; Michelle, Kath, Rach, Case, Whit, Lucy & Sarah and to Keith the brat of all brats So many memones, tears, laughs and good 
times. These years have been special: I love you all and couldn't have done it without you. . , , ^ 

Well folks we re finally here and "I'm sad to say I'm on my way.... " I'll miss you all but whenever you think of SMU, think ol me ana 
always look back on these days with a light heart and a smile. 

"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step." -Lau Tzu 

Christopher Lau 

The "Master" arrived at SMU in grade 1 1 and was given this honorable 'title' after the Mid-Autumn Festival of 1995, when his new fnends 
discovered what an amazing guy he was. Thanks to his fair and "shiny" complexion and his resemblance of a HK muscleman, he was 
nicknamed "Ng Kong", but later on, when we found out how much muscle Chns actually has, this title was no longer recognised and almost 
forgotten by now. He is now simply known as "Seafood" because of his love for seafood not! 

Chirs is admired by his peers for his outstanding grades, incredible wit and his astonishing bowling skills, however, he is especially 

popular amongst girls because of his great chosptick-like legs and the fact that he never gams weight, no matter how much he eats! 

If s a miserable fate for a guy, isn't it? 

Apart from having a distinct Bntish accent, the Master's sense of fashion also makes him unique. His apparel brands "evolved" as the 
year progressed, starting with Giordano in the fall, "Chick' woolies in winter and finally ending up with his most "stylish" collection yet: Calvin 

Although we all know that Chns is quite young compared to other grade 1 2's. the ever-changing frequency of his voice still makes people 
wonder whether he really belongs to this grad class. Perhaps his vocal cord is damaged because he never stops saying "particular 

phrases" in Cantonese, English, Japanese.. ..etc.etc, i,e. this year, he never stops saying " is the best!" , where is a new grade 9 girl 

and known as "K-mui" by the Cantonese.

Simon Lau 

Until should one day our paths cross again, goodbye to all. 

Vincent Law 

Vinne, in all his innocence, came to SMUS in Gr.8. Vince had a great time in SMU. It's always fun listening to CL's pick-up 
lines; figuring out how to "inch" the Wong family (very obviously); try to understand DT's point of view, the late-night 
activities, and playing Rugby with the boys, etc. In the house, thanks to his wonderful, not to mention thoughtful and caring 
roommate-MPreston. Vince lost all his self-esteem and confidence in his room. He found out that the best way to come- 
back IS to say "Ha. You have the weirdest roommate on campus! So there..." to his roommate. Vince tries to stay in DT's 
room as much as possible. Where he would sit down with Danny, and discuss the only two problems faced by men. He 
would have never made it if it wasn't DT's CONTINUES support! Thanks to: DEIV&Co's coconut biscuits; MW's delightful 
smile; YM's beautiful songs; YA's telephone talks; CL1's silk boxers & wine-glass; IW's worthily lessons; CW's Armani T- 
shirt; AN's forwarding e-mails; SL's meaningful thoughts; JP&AS's - whatever!; EH's snowboard wax; CL2's clean-minded 
jokes; SB's entertaining argues with DT, and OS's lovely mushroom-rice... See you in the future! 

Lucas Lee 

Lucas, SDF-unzip-tetris-kmg has survived 5 yrs. at SMU; The Su man, Tree, and Dragon KFL... SDF now understands the 
concept of "zee fee chai" torture developed by KUNG-FU-LAU. He'll always remember jamming music with KFL. "Tai-jien"! 
Zip foretells that FYMA's (Esc) tricks (hehe) and possibly "retired-old-age-Dragon's DRAGON_X" (hehehehe!!) ; ) will 
continue! What's gonna come out 97, FYMA... what's the meaning of sharing :) ?? What's "afterdark" and toaster2. Dragon? 
SDF will remember talks about "umbrella" with "Michael Chang" and about the stuff in the fish tank.. He leaves SMUS with 
the words: "CHIAO .... and remember... Beyond .yeah... great thanks to SH, SO, IT, YH, SL, JK, and O'buddy 
O'pal.-.AY ; ) ! all the good fnends of grad '95!, the members of Grad '98 "Hung-Hing- Association", and of course, SHOYU 

Youn-Keun Lee 

Yuen Kuen Lee (Bio) came to SMUS in grade 9. Yuen first had many problems with rules and roommates. However, he found 
his way in boarding and ended up being a boarding prefect. He will miss KP, DT, MJ, and all his Korean friends along with his 
roommate IT. Yuen also miss practicing of dance moves with Stephan in the Gym, although he could not accomplish some 
of the moves with practising over a year. He likes to thank SG, RC, and TM who helped him to go through many tough times. 
Yuen will be missed by many people in the school. Good Luck in your future Yuen!!!

Olivia Limbu — -^^__^„i^^,i^«^^iiii^™^— ^^^^^— ■^^^— i^^— ^— 

Olivia first known to us as Rita, came to SMUS in grade ten and spent three years as a boarder in Winslow House. She enjoys golf, tennis, field hockey 
and bowling However her gitt in bowling was not known to us until she came in first place in the Victoria High-school League.. Olivia also plays the piano 
and has been in the school choir for three years. Her hobbies include Free-Tel on the intemet, more Free-Tel, and talking on the phone (with all the people 
she met on Free-Tel') When she is off the intemet, she is most likely to be found shopping, or cooking her famous "soy-sauce-chicken-wings , or 
washing dishes with her roommate. Her memones of grade 12 would certainly include writing Lit. and History essays last minute before deadline, karaoke 
on weekends and also ah-Wings ready-to-serve curry chicken and mooncakes from HK. Grade eleven was spent mostly in Winslow 201 : sleepnDvers. 
hair-dyes and Joy-Joys makeovers (notice LiVs perfect eyebrows), 'The Heat Is On In Saigon" (never forget that), and night before Spnng Break. 
Fnends will remember her forever as nng-hing' -for her ever-aimable (and slightly ah-Q) character, also as 'ah-Lang ' -beautful. beautiful forever. Never 
will she be forgotten for oiganizing parties (le: Dinner for 35 at Hunan Village) Next step for Olivia will be university, where she will eam her degree and

Cassie Lin 

Cassie came to SMUS from Hsinchu, Taiwan in Grade 10. She was shy and scared of the brand new environment as a 
boarder in Timmis House. " I wanna go home" could be heard from her all the time. Her sweetness was soon recognized by 
people not only inside the school, but also outside the school. She began to make new fnends and this motivation changed 
her personality. She became more vivid and began to accustom to the boarding community which tumed out to be her " little 
home " in Canada. Her room was described as a grocery store in the school because she had a lot of " junk food " in her 
whole third drawer of her desk. Sometimes, you could even find noodles or cookies in her closet, because the drawer was 
too fulliii' She was a never grown up girl whose acting and the way of her talking were still like a kid.... Whenever you 
walked into her room you could always find lots of teddy bear things and cute stuff, which were all her favorite, around her 

place Also you could almost see her cooking in her room every mid-night'!'!''!'' She was kind of tiny though SIVlUS gave 

her many unforgettable good and bad memories. She will sure miss her friends who have helped her all the time. Good luck 
to you all!! 

Joy Liu 

Joy. originally from Taiwan, came to SMUS in Gr. 10. She spent all of her time playing with CL, B.P., A.T., S.P. (5 people 
group activity, crazy and wild) dunng her first year and had more fun when Yan arrived as her roommate in Gr. 1 1 . Dunng the 
year. Joy and Yan took turns sleeping throughout the night. They got along well and had a great time living together. Joy. being 
a member of choir for more than 3 years, is now a member of the Pnma Choir (after her fine contribution in the musical of 

Oklahoma.) Joy will always remember her favounte song from choir 1 2: Prayer of St. Francis.. ."Where there is .let 

there be JOY." Joy-joy really has a full schedule because of the b-ball score-keeping and participating in the musical functions. 
All the hard work paid off when she received the scholarship. (Well done! Joy!) However, being more involved in the Winslow 

House boarding community Joy became our House Keeper, coming around weekly on Wednesday nights for our bath mats 

and Thursday for our room checks clad in her glasses. T-shirt and "RED" pajama pants. Besides. Joy likes to share her beauty 
insight on eyebrows to the girls in Winslow. Special thanks to CL, B.P.. A.T.. S.P., Y.M.. C.S., O.L. Syl.S.. J.T., M.H., S.O. and 

R.N.. S.S.. little S.S.. Y.S. and A., 1., B., E., C, V., D., 2Es. Good Luck Joy. wherever you may be next year. Have fun in 

"your whole new world." 

Silvia Liu 

I came from Singapore, and reached SMU in December 1996. Boarding Is a new experience for me, and I like how one can 

easily find a friend just by walking a few steps. But I cannot deny that boarding life is boring and very different from what I 
expected it to be. It seems that we're kept up only in studying, sleeping, and eating. Still, I must say that I have learnt a lot 
by being away from home. For this. I offer my heartfelt gratitude to the teachers in SMU, and of course to all my fnends who 
had taught me one thing or another. Lastly, my special thanks to Renee C. Alice H. and Tina C for giving me so much 
comfort when I'm down and out. "Life is but a game of chess, you learn from experiences and will have to face the world 
with a much revised plan of how you're going to live. Sometimes, many times. I find a mask necessary, and it pains me to 
put one on. But like chess, life is about surviving. ..and a little pain does good to the growing soul. Maybe, just maybe, 
people should learn to talk less, listen more, and learn to deal with things more quietly." -Raymod Austen

Yan Mak 

Yan Mak came to SMUS on a cold and dismal September day. She was greeted by warmth from the Winslow Prefects and House 
Parents- The quiet was soon shattered by a bubbly and contagious chatter, hoping that this noise was not her room mate, she sat in 
her room minding her own business not knowing that this "noise" was going to be her future room mate. She had a talent for singing and 
was given solos in school concerts. Later, when she was not asked to sing solo, she decided to go ahead anyways... Van's hobbies 

includes: Eating, sleeping, singing, and her favourite .. TALKING ON THE PHONE AFTER 2:00am She figured out a brand new time 

table where it would enable her to talk on the phone and sleep enough: sleep when it is still light outside and wake up when it is past 
midnight... She developed a passion for sparklers and bubbles somewhere along the way, which she enjoyed doing in and out of 
doors... With a passion for Winnie the Pooh and pigs, she never ceased to clutter her room with Pooh stuff and in her later days at SMU 
was nicknamed "Banana Pig" Known for her love of eating, she never failed to leave the sink area cluttered with dirty dishes and wonder 
how they got there a month later. . . garbage was also a problem in grade 1 1 when she considerately "freshened up" the air on the 

second floor of Winslow House one day Yan Mak, we'll always love you and we'll never forget your "electncity". She will always 

remember. . Her first year: J-JL, OS. SP, YA, SS, Kams. AH, MH, MW. AN. my manager EH. my secretary OL... Good luck to... IW. 
VL, DT. CL. A(K)Y. Kim-kim: keep singing CN good luck in all you do PA: thanks 4 all your hug 'n' kisses. RS, SD: Sorry for all the 
noise, but love you guys anyways... 

Alex Martin 

Ubi dubium ibi liberas. (Latin proverb, "where there is doubt there is freedom") Alex Martin: More Ignie Ferroque est Falum lustum 

Stullorum. . For those of you who do not know who or what I am 250 words will not tell you. I will therefore leave you with a few points to 
ponder instead of the condensed history and slew of initials you were no doubt expecting . Teachers are the guardians of knowledge. Qui 
cuslodet ipso custodian'' . . Light in the absence of eyes illuminates nothing. Visible forms are not inherent in the world but are granted by 
the act of seeing Events contain no meaning of themselves but only that meaning that the mind imposes on them Yet the world continues, 
whether the mind exists or not ... Recently a phenomenon was observed in marine predators that seemed to be without explanation. 
Predators began dying of cancers and immune disorders, in some cases they were driven out of the area completely The concentrations 
of the pollutants that would cause these disorders was minimal: all tests showed the concentrations to be safe. It turns out that pollutants 
can be concentrated up the food chain so that what is safe to those at the bottom is lethal to those at the top. It is worth pausing here and 
considering that the human incidence of cancer has been steadily increasing seemingly without any explanation; But don't worry the 

concentration of pesticides on the grass the cows eat has been shown safe in all tests "So we keep asking over and over, until a handful 

of earth stops our mouths. But is that an answer?" - Heinreich Heine.

Janika McFeely 

At birtfi we are red-faced, round, intense, pure. The crimson fire of universal consciousness burns in us. Gradually, 

however, we are devoured by parents, gulped by schools, chewed by peers, swallowed by social institutions, wolfed by 

bad habits, and gnawed by age; and by the time we have been digested, cow style, in those six stomachs, we emerge a 

single disgusting shade of brown. 

The lesson of the beet, then, is this - hold onto your divine blush, your innate rosy magic, or end up brown. 

- "The Bill for Darrell Bob Houston" from Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins 

Thanks to all my friends whio gave me so many memories. 


Andrew McVie 

Blah, Blah, and a token patronizing Blah. I came to the school in Grade 8, left after Grad. I had a great time, except for the 
homework and classes. Seriously though, thanks to everyone for all the memories, good and otherwise. Special thanks go 
to the patient wonderful people in the Math department who breath a sigh of relief as I leave, and to all who have been 
victims of my sarcasm and just tolerated it, and to anyone who ever gave me a ride to Starbucks. Aspirations: ohhh,,, 
maybe a job, a family, maybe a house and car. If that doesn't work out, I'll just create my own banana republic. As for the 
initials, if you feel like you're being missed out, you're probably very important to me, (Andrew's Mood = tan x) Hey Sean, 
got a spare? Wanna go for coffee?

Rlsa Naito 

From Tokyo to Victoria, a little girl, Rlsa Naito (Japanese Queen by Saito or Untouchable Girl, by CHU) came to SMUS 
three years ago. She's been though bad experiences and good ones. The first ESL class people thought she was a 
YAKUZA from IKEBUKURO by her nose ring, the weirdest hair colour and her own different style. Following Da Crew's 
tradition, she didn't get involved and always seemed to disappear after school and Prep, She was well known with her 
huge bodyguard <Domino> together with her coolest and closet friends - Da Crew, All i can say is,,,, those were wicked 
times. We all had our own style and our own routine but times change and Da Crew had to leave for no reason (Sach, 
Flav, Flip. Domino. Danny), but me, RIS. CHU and Henry 

chilled on. Two years has past, and she joined the 96' crew. Whatever the situation, Ris was always there to cheer us up 
and was always the person to talk to. She'd especially like to thank PAT (If you want new ones, I can get them!!). DaMan 
from the Old Crew. The three years I've been here wouldn't be the same without you. She will also remember 96/97 - Wil. 
Saito. Lem. Fly. Mahat. Vas. Kevin. Ryota. Lance, and Dave - Thanks for being there for me. And of course my Huggles 
who have supported me over the phone... I Love you all. 


Yoshifumi Nakanishi 

YoshI "FLY" Nakanishi came to SMUS two years ago. This once short and shy native of Tokyo, Japan, turned Into a once 
again short but crazy "FLY" from Symon's House. 

( Don't forget, he was a Prefect) Known for his unique attitude and insane speed, he was for some reason recognized for 
his unmatched height among everything else. His memories with Da Crew will never fade. To his Harvey brothers KULA, 
LEM(July 6)and VAS, and of course he'll never forget the Japanese crew RYO, SHING and RIS. Also his roommate MJ. To 
grad '96s CHU, FUNK, BAbe and STUD. The Fly gives his thanx to everyone that has helped him get this far. Although 
the hair may change throughout the years, it will always be hard. He would like to sign off by saying, 'Tve grown so much 
in the past two years..." ( Whatever FLY!! ) 

Blair Nelson 

I came to SMU in grade 10 after six years at GNS, the wonderful school that it is (sarcasm intended). Memorable 
moments on the Pacific Swift: L.W., K.B. still got that picture of my back''!-that hurt. Hey C.J., J.W., R.G., M.B., do you 
know what a walk sign looks like??- man, that cop was mean! You know, the Galapagos have really big turtles. 
Anyway, to all my friends, best of luck in the future. 

Aries Ng 

Aries came to SMU in Grade 1 1 She's graduating in the year ol 1997. and as a Hong Kong-nese. it is a special year to her As a proud grad 97. Anes 
always believed in strong Chinese culture and always teaching younger students all sorts of ancient courtesies Her great work of Art has always earned 
much respect from Jamie, Renee and lots of others. Anes or "AH MOE "(twin name with MW) is a procrastinalor She always says that she's going to 
study but ends up sleeping, eating, talking on the phone with J C and doodling at the same time And yeah, since she's popular with her peers, her 
gangster fnends always break into her room and interrupt her studying. Loud people like Y.A., O L , MW , G C, (in descending order by how loud they are) 
come in and gossip, use ah moe's e-mail. ( Thanks Anes. tor always shanng the computer, even when you have tons of homework undone!) Everyday, 
she needs a lot ot calcium from B-hall (That's probably the only thing she cherished @bhall) NEVER STEAL milk from her, she'd go funous! Every 
weekend, while she's at Vancouver, her stupid BF would call her from 8 am to 2 00am non-slop' (15 min intervals) At the same time, her lucky neighbors 
would have to put up with nnging noise while trying to study, thinking: "Don't they get the point that she's not there'' Geez! " At night, her light is on forever, 
"work IS supposed to be done at night", COME ON guys don't you know that line! 

Last, we want to congratulate her success in the past years in smu. Her badminton skill will always win the glory for smus and her voice will always sing 
beautiful notes to all. Good luck and forever young! 

Thanks to Y.A., Ah Mo (M W ), C.W., C.L.s, J.C, R.C., C.S.. S.Ss, ai ren (Y.M.), I.W.. OL . M H., L.L., S L., A.H . roomate C.L., V.L.s, A.W., J.L, C.T, G.C.,

Kermit was a big huge frog. Thanks for everything SMU! 
PS. You boys were good but JH was the best 

Sina Noureddin 

Here's a little something for John Q. Public: I entered SMU in grade 8 and soon found that it wasn't as tough as I had 
expected. Some of the teachers might describe me as sarcastic, but then again, some teachers might also say that there 
is no place they would rather be than at the school. Senously though, it opened a lot of doors for me and I have no regrets 
for coming. I'd have to say that my favourite teachers were my physics teachers and my biology teacher (hiiight!). As for 
all my friends, I'd like to say: Foley, you still make me sick, but you were one of the most real people I ever met. Scott, for 
an "esquire," you've got some pretty white skin. Colleen, you've trusted me so far, so trust me when I tell you that you 
should be proud of who you are (no matter where you go!). Jacki, it's just a fro: get over it. Robyn, there's more to me 
than a sack of feathers (I think). Pat G., don't major in chromatography (if there is such a thing). Sean, do something 
about that nasty neck-burn (just kidding!). Amanda, don't become a chemistry teacher. Keir, what can I say, the name 
says it all. Rohanna, take care and I truly wish you the best in everything. Dev, the truth is out there. Oh yeah. Colleen 
wanted me to mention the drive to 7-1 1 on Christmas Concert night. ..and the lack of a wallet... Anyways, thanks for 
everything and the best of luck to you all. 


Chantal Nowak 

Chantal came to SMUS in grade eight. The little Swiss girl managed to adjust to the Canadian environment very quickly, 
(especially to the likes of certain Canadian men!). The most important thing in her life though, will always be her love for 
music, particularly the violin for which she will most be remembered. In the last couple of years, she's been in and out of 
school (more out!!!) due to her busy music schedule at the Conservatory. In the future, Chantal plans to study music in the 
States or Europe, and later she will certainly want to return to Canada.

Sharon Om 

The "Coca-cola" girl arrived in SMU 3 years ago and is now one of the seven prefects of Winslow House. This night owl stunned all her 
peers with her intelligence.superb grades,and her amazing ability to learn fairiy "useful" phrases in other languages, especially 
Cantonese. Right now, Sharon is known in the Korean community as the respectable Big Sister, UNNIE, or something along those 
lines. Sharon can be a real pest sometimes, and you would have expenenced this if you sat next to her in physics class in grade 1 1 . You 
would be able to find an exquisite aggregate of "un/happy faces" and "stickman" on your worksheets when she tried to explain the many 
theones of physics. Hopefully, Sharon's artistic skills will improve in her grade 12 year! Although Sharon does not study biology, she has 
a particular interest in other people's "lungs" and this word has been in her Chinese vocabulary for ages. She leamt how to "appreciate" 
other people's lungs from her ex-roommate, ML, whom she misses dearly. Sharon also acquired the "aenal" attack skill from ML, but 
she stopped the "bombing" this year, due to the lack of human targets because no one dares to walk under her window anymore. Apart 
from hangin' with her boarding pals, Sharon is also involved with; ED,DI.EB,OY,KE.NT,CO,LA, and her most recent addtion,PK, 
Who's next? 

Serena Peng 

Serena came to S.M.U.S at the age of 15. She was a bit shy due to the ability of her English while she first came here. 
However as a lovely character like her, she soon made friends with everyone and got alone with them. She spent most of her 
time with AT. C.L. J.L. and her sister B.P. for the first year. After her sister graduated that year, she started living indepen- 
dently and grew stronger and mature for the rest of the school life. She planned either going to S.F.U. or challenging another 
new style of life in Japan next year. Finally she would like to say thanks for all the friends that had supported her and having 
fun together, see u all again soon ! 

Virginia Peterson 

To all the special ones, (and everyone else that I can't mention cause I don't have enough room). RG, you have been there through it 

all. bad perms, broken arms and black hair dye. You've never let me forget all the moments that I wanted to: marshmallows, the chapel, 

JP, the Robbie, and serenades. Remember the red roses, the feasts and Rueben (that was his name wasn't it?)always your EBPLP, 

and... the chicken LAID the egg!!!! 

RE, let's head up to WL for some late night mini golf, and keep an ear out for the truck. Our mission to find the Oak Bay Tea Party wasn't 

impossible, but don't let the trays dnve. Call me some time and we'll take a spin in the yellow truck (what's your number again?) 

KL. sandcastle weekend rocked, but no bnnging the boys back to the trailer park. Keep out of hot tubs with creepy guys and don't forget 

your visitor's badge. Remember to bring your shoes cause the ground's HOT!!! Look out for the Bikini B'tches and creepy old men. 

Never forget car rallies, parties dances (and all the prep before). Don't tnp down the stairs especially if the cops are there (now where 

was that party again?-ask GT he remembers lots from that night "were YOU there''") Life's biggest dilemma- what to wear!!! I'll give you 

hints, but not if Maury's on. You're always there stay beautiful, I love you all. 

Keith Phillips 

Keith came to SMU in grade 6 straight out of Sidney with the biggest grin and the littlest eyes you'll ever see Keith soon settled in to the Ivliddle 
School with Luke and the gang. He remembers his busy social life which included parties every weekend, spin the bottle. Metallica. hanging down 
town, and talking to Maria til 4 in the morning In grade 8 Keith started one of his traditions and went on his first tnp to Silver Star. To Keith the 
days at Middle School were made up of screwin' around and having Uncle JJ yelling at him and everyone else. As Keith grew up he finally entered 
the Senior School and as each party passed by he fell more and more at home. Due to these parties and Rugby (Some of his greatest highlights of 
SMU) Keith probably has more false teeth than PKT himself Grade 10 was all about hanging Russ. Rob and the guys, "hacking", snowboarding, 
rugby, and watching Star Wars (Past times he still greatly enpys) That year Keith (Quite) went to Ml Baker with the SMU and spent some quality 
time on the hill with Duncan (Spunk), Shingo (Shwingo), Sunny and had to live around a couple of wired guys related to Mr Piete In grade 1 1 
Keith decided that he had spent way too much time on the bus to/from Sidney so he intelligently C??) moved into boarding where he became a 
Bolton Bud. Keith roomed with Danny Tang (DT. Down Town) and he will never forget the memories that they shared He would like to thank DT 
for teaching him, by personal example, that the best way to party is to do it a couple of times a week until 4 in the morning Sometimes DTs "wild 
party nature" was too much for Keith so he found sanctuary on Mitss (DM J H G D-T) and Martin's (Marlinno) floor where they had parties of their 
own! Since then the 2 of them (Keith and Mils) have become very good fnends (Back-packing Europe this summer) Now in grade 12 Keith is at 
the height of his career, but he still has the mentality of a 4 year old. 10 years down the road when we think of Keith we will remember fancy flask. 
Raves, playing "music" with "Mad Man ", Dances (Chandeliers and Window jumping), his appearances in assembly, snowboarding. Bolton Buds 
(Joint Effort!!), rugby, numerous hair styles (Some good, many bad). Molding Mud and his most famous saying, "Anyhow .. "Keith wants to thanks to 
Mana and all his friends for a great 7 years at SMU!!! To Scott and Todd. Keep on UnicyclinglMM! 


Michelle Phipps 

Mizel, Mitch, Mish-Poo, Ms. Phipps. Phippsey - all of the above and more! So man things, only 2 years... Oh, where to begin for this 
Albertan Farmgirl? How about hystencal calls to Forum from room 301 . Rice and peas on the floor again?! Ne'er to forget shuffles, 
squeaker, C.J., and C. K. "Oh my god!" (Thanx Bulent) And oh yes the evil one - but lipstick makes great windows paint! Gotta love that 
bottled water, "Are you girls listening to country music in there? George, George, George of the jungles... Oklahoma... J.D., Coffee? Puppy 
Eyes P.G etc. New York, New York! Enough chocolate almonds to bloat a horse. Hot Bell Boys, lame airplane movies. ODE to Domino's, 
Tostldos and Shogun. Hey, Amber, did you have a baking accident? Narrow escapes in the singlamobile _ I do mean narrow. If ya think 
I'm sexy... Nadia, come, let us dance like children of the night. Far side; far, far, tar, sole. Sulphur Boy, obviously!, only if you say please. 
Toot, Toot goes French class. Too much of you know who... put that away. Candied Apples and Australian hunks. Mizel's had one and 
she'll have the other some day. At least there was only one year of uncle B.hen? Tl 82's rock on! Hey girls, how ya doing? It'll flush out 
your system... the Ex-Lax twins are doing strong (without any chocolate help) Room changes Galore. Stay away from that black van! Who 
did that to Winnie? Beamer Man, thanks but no thanks. Michelle leaves us with... "Hollywood, here I come' " 

Joanne Poon 

Joey, the bananna. arrived at SMU in grade 12 and joined the Winslow House. First impnessions: short, skinny, maybe a little manly, but on the whole 
pretty cool She was a buff gal and stayed in shape by taking daily walks to 1^1 Jae. of course only to en|oy the scenery. Her favounte pastime: seducinfi 
guys and then rejecting them. Although after a while she found the perfect match: the stud with the MX-6 who loved curry chicken. School life was a 
breeze for Jo Instead of studying, she spent hours gossiping on the phone or chillin' out with Apple (EL) and B-size (AS). These three were inseparable 
and were always making a not (but who l<nows what rat they talked about') JP's rad personality made it a cinch for her to make fnends and in no time she 
was fully in with the gang. Every weekend, it was impossible to locate her, sometrady ought to gel her a cell (hint, hint) Coming to SIVIU was a huge 
change for her but she adapted well. She loved SI^U so much that for two weekends in a row she stayed on school campus and checked in every hour' 
Boy was that ever an awesome expenence. 

AS & EL: Thanx for being there for me when I need you guys. I will always be there for you if anyone of you get into trouble. AS: Don't drink too much 
juice, or else you would turn to a non-German. EL: Ha, another year for you at SMU! Enjoy. I hope you will find someone who can go tambe with you IW 
& IVIW: Don't forget to invite me to your wedding. EH: Thanx for tieing my Dai Lo. Si-Foo: Be careful, don't fall on the street! DL: "Juice, juice, I want more 
juice " SS: "I love woo ying ". YA: I love you. bark po' CL: Thanx for all the time that you spent with me. I am glad that I met you this final year at SMU. All 
those people who "inched" me: Watch out, I will come back for you. 

Mlchael Preston 

The memories were great but it's the friends I'll remember. EC "All our careers are useless someday we'll be working for 
you". RB "This place ain't quite the same". RE "I'll always be a midnight joker". GF "I don't have any answers". VL "Nice 
point of view". KP "Remember it's not how many times you spin, it's how long you stay up there". 

To the rest, " Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take 
rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not 
victory nor defeat. "- Teddy Roosevelt 

Colleen Saffrey 

Colleen entered SMU in Grade 5 and was instantly a hit with the boys with her combination of a tantalizing 'good girl" act 
and her sexy hair floop. Due to her school-girl phase, her earlier days basically consisted of studying and eight o'clock 
bedtimes. She continued her good girl act all throughout Middle School and well into Senior School, until she finally learne : 
to loosen up. (Not without some help of course!!) She Is utterly elated when realizing that she will never have to play 
soccer again nor endure another torturous 2400 meter run- both being her least favourite memories about the school. Anri 
of course, how could we ever forget Colleen and her acute anal-retentiveness? Not a day passed when she did not bring a 
minimum of 12 sharp, Venus HB pencils to each test (lined up on her desk in descending size order, eraser side right). And 
also, her insistence on having a calculator during English tests! Soon Colleen will have her PhD in Psychology and will 
implement her mind control plan throughout the world- "I am the one in control". Still, no matter where Colleen goes or what 
she does, she will always be our #1 floop goddess. 


Andrea Sam 

Andrea a k.a B-size and Goun De. arrived at SMU for her final year. She joined the Winslow House and was forced to live 
with the craziest but coolest roommate, who was obsessed with cows!! (T.B.) Although she didn't know anyone, she was able 
to make friends in no time. (Thanks to the BIG LAKE) Within the first month, she got married (S.S), and was having an affair 
(D.L.)! Boy. what a FLIRT!! Andrea loved going for leisurely strolls to the park with her two pals, apple (E,L.) and banana 
(J. P.). know, the swings are fun!! Everybody in the house loved her. especially the houseparents. For two weeks in a 
row, they didn't want to do anything other than see her every hour on the dot! During the weekends she would spend her time 
hanging out with gals and they would always drink JUICE together. (Baby Duck Licks!) Andrea loved the alphabet, especially 
the letter (hmm... wonder why?) In the evenings, she would be spotted playing B-ball with an aSSwipe (S.H.) and her swell 
god bro (I.W.). This year has been great for Andrea. Andrea's last words: 

It's been a hella funk year thank to all my chillin' buds: Apple and Banana, luv ya 4-ever, don't know what I'd do without you. 
Stay sweet and pretty always! S.S. & D.L., the coolest babes ever, the sex was sweet, I'll miss U tons, juice buds till the end! 
Y.M., Y.A. & O.L.. thanks for all the support. I'll never forget you guys. I.W.. the awesomest bro on the earth, keep laughin' 
(he he). S.H.. hey wicked jap boy. you still gotta kill me! 

Luv ya babe. J.H., don't 4-get me! E.H.. U made Smu special. Winslow girls, you rule! 4 the Koreans: sa lang hey!! Best of 
luck to the rest of the gang. I'll always remember U!! Last but not least. T.B., you're the best. I luv you girl, party hard and 
smile!! Thanks SMU for all the memories!! 

Daniel Sander 

DANIEL SANDER (1995-97) was born and raised on the northshore of Vancouver. He entered SMUS in grade eleven for 
his final two years of high school. A prefect of Harvey House, Dan co-captained the 1 st XI soccer team while also enjoying 
1st XV rugby. Originally planning to continue his athletic career, Dan has recently shifted his priorities towards his studies. 
Next year Dan plans to get back to the big city to study business at the University of British Columbia. 

Amy Slegg 

Amy's been at SMU for an incredibly long time of two years. While that may not seem very long to some of our near 

"lifers" (and we all know what that's synonomous with!), it's been long enough for a lot of fun and little too much time in 

physics class. The things she will probably remember in ten years, include her role as Ado Annie in the 95/96 school 
musical, Oklahoma; her incredible survival of the cast party afterwards; and her even more incredible survival of her role as 
co-producer in this year's Musical Revue. A few of the adventures with the gals (which we will look back on in a few years 
and say "I wonder what the heck I was talking about when I wrote that!") include: BIG WHITE, "helper dog" and the "DNA 

test", "oh my god was that a cat?", Shawnigan and "let's go swimming I don't care if it's three am!!!!i", the pumpkin 

and CORN!!!! adventure. "I'm thinking of buying a Saturn", the "and he cups it" story by our most famous story- 
teller and 'brass undies'. A roast. a "toast" to Freddy, Lando Jackson Jr., Hamster Ball, and to all the gals, her 

compadres, C.N. D.H. K.K. and R.F.! 

To everyone thanks for coming out. And please, stop looking at my pants. 

Nicholas Stanger 

He sat beneath the mighty tree and put his arms about his knees. Despite the throng of people and despite the palpable 
curtain that separated his world from theirs, he felt something like a mood of calm cut through the gibbering of his thoughts. 
He looked at the glaring whitewash of the church and thought 'turtles' eggs,' and then he remembered a snatch of a 
nonsense rhyme from his childhood. He stood up suddenly and began to lift his medical robe, but was forced down gently 
by a nun. Sometimes he heard voices. Sometimes they made him do things by threatening not to go away until he did 
what he was told. Sometimes they made him itch all over until he was in a frenzy of ripping his own flesh with his nails. 
Sometimes the gap between herself and the world would yawn so wide that he would look down and see an infinite void 
beneath his feet; those were the times when he would run wildly, trying to find the ground, crashing into invisible things that 
made him bruise and bleed. 

-Louis de Bernieres 

Christopher Stephens 

What can I say about graduating from SMU? Although only having been here a few months it's been a great year and 
these are some of the memories I'll take home with me of 96/97 :- 

1). Fnday nights at John boys' with JG. NA, JM, KP, BE, ER, CN, GB, ST. 

2). Surfing Cadboro bay during the freak Pacific storm! 

3). Snowboarding over Christmas with the boys. 

4). 'With no direction known, and complete unknown, just like a Rolling Stone" 

5). Saturday mornings physically challenged . 

6). Some fine Victonan raves with AS, KH, JG, KP, MB, SF, RW. 

7). Common room fights with the sensei JG and AT, LW, ST, SF 



Sylvia Suen 

Sylvia came to SMUS in Gr. 1 1 straight from Hong Kong. Her first impression to people was a quiet, shy and good girl. 
However, becoming more involved in the Winslow House boarding community.... her wild nature began to reveal itself more 
and more... Don't even come close to her in snow ball fight, you will regret it! She found herself very relaxed and happy 
during choir class in Gr. 1 1 and therefore she practised her vocal skills in her bathroom. Her frequent singing in the 
bathroom shows that she has the potential of becoming a famous and successful singer in the future. Sylvia is a neat freak 
in Gr. 1 1 ... a single speck of dust on the carpet will drive her crazy. Then of course, immediate action will take place and 
you'll see her vacuuming the carpet with great strength and determination. Besides, her sink and shower are always 

sparkling clean! However the situation has changed in Gr. 12 In grade 12, she has become more cheerful and prettier 

too! This is all due to her daily "beauty nap" after school and after prep! She has a tendency to sleep whenever she has 
nothing to do! To her, sleeping is very important! She would like to say thanks to YA (her ex- roommate), SO, OL, SS, YM 
, MH, CS, JL, CL, IW and AH for being so nice to her. Anyways, we will all miss her in the future and her cheerful smile will 
always be her trade mark! Best wishes to you! 


Connie Sze 

Connie (aka On! On! & "inch-fly"), joined Winslow House when she was in grade 10. She changed from being a shy girl to a well- 
respected prefect in her house. Well done! Connie is "always-known-as" a friendly and kind person amongst her buds: SS.KP 
YA.JL.OL.YM.SS.SO.MH, and of course, her roommate, SP, whom she thinks is very cute and sweet. The above are also on Connie's 
list of "tVlahjong Victims " and here's a word of advice to ALL her "mahjong legs": ONLY play with Connie immediately after Thursday 
night, 9pm! Connie is very diligent and can get pretty stressed sometimes, especially during the "exam seasons". Her most frequently 
used phrase during the months of January and June is: "Ngo sei la'", which means "I am sooooo dead!" in English and " Yo estoy 
rendida!'", if you prefer it in espagnol. After having served in the Food Committee last year, Connie decided to have her own "Brown 
Hall" in her very own room! Her daily specials of authentic Chinese delicacies are as follows: MON- Chicken wings with oyster sauce; 
TUES.- Rice with Chinese sausages; WED.- Braised mushrooms with dried scallops; THURS.- Shrimp roe noodles; FRI.- a trip to 
Chinatownli Of course, this schedule rotates )ust like Brown Hall's, To those that are constantly ill: give Connie a call and she will 
deliver hot, steaming porridge to the Infirmary GUARANTEEDi There is no service charge, but tips are always welcome! 

Danny Tang 

"DT" - "Downtown!" "Where are you going after school?" "DT - Downtown! " Everyone called Danny Tang "DT or Downtown' 
He came to SMUS in grade 9 from Hong Kong. He began by learning English in E.S.L. with VLaw, EHung.... Out of his 
memories, Rugby is the best memory for him. He was playing right - wing and a long distant try was always on! Four years 
boarding life in Bolton House, he had so many fun times. Every time on duty, he loves to sing a song to everyone to wake 
them up in the morning. At night, he and VLaw were cooking noodles and did other "THINGS" as usual. He will miss all the 
night time telephone talks with ANg. Finally, he would like to thank Mr. & r\/lrs. Cameron and Mrs Greenwell. Best of luck in 
the future, "DT'i TAKE CARE'

so funliNever forget the times durin' the badminton session. .(to all the past school players." never thought we do it, eh ??

I came to smu in grade six, and since then Thanks to the memorable moments that have gotten me through: AJ.H- What is 
the secret to the cookie recipe? Flicking chunkers off the pillow at cattle point with AJ.H. and H.G. "No, that's not an old lady 
sprawled on the front doorstep, it's just Hayley." Trips in the V.W.van and Mt. Washington chalets with J.M. Bond girls, 
espressos(this must be a joke!), rumble from the top bunk, bushes, boats, and hair-boy, "La di doo, la di de". "Guys, it smells 
in here". No, not U2! J.C.-my bike's making a funny noise... ( You'll have to excuse the initials and the run of lame inside 
jokes.) "I do not regret the things I have done, but the things I didn't do. "My plans for next year are to go away for a while

Gap/ Tonque 

Gary came to Canada during the summer of '85 at the dear age of five as an innocent little English boy and began his 
S.M.U. career in grade 1 . (he was sentenced for life that fall) The memories that followed are ones that will be with him 
forever. Twelve years of happy times and nights filled with great memories and some not so great memories. Other 
nights, well let's just say weren't remembered at all. Memories include G.F streaking the Causeway in his tighty whities 
singing circus tunes, the voluptuous one J.B, four foot mystery dates courtesy of D.D. Some interesting nights spent with 
G.G, J,V, and D,S and as for C.G and L.W, that will never be forgotten or forgiven. There was never anything like a quiet 
Saturday night hockey game with E.C. As for K.L. my little B.R. you know where you will always be, S.S.I.M.H. p.s. 
What?.. ..Nothing! On the athletic front Gary was successful on the rugby field most of all, attempted soccer and basketball 
but Gary was never quite cut out for either. He found much more success on the old hockey rink and on the baseball 
diamond. Gary leaves this humble establishment with an abundance of knowledge in many subjects for which he thanks 
his teachers. He has also experienced many important aspects of life for which he thanks his friends.

5 long years at Smus have racked up so memories ifs hard to cap 'em all up a paragraph. Middle school meant chillin with d.w(fever), n.s. r.m 
and latter the legend r.b. K.w was their from the very start and still is 4 life. As they say can't sleep mad. Middle school was up and down but it 
ended with a bang and swoosh eg and I were out of their unharmed. Senior school, grade nine was a long year of learning the hard way. Don't 
face wash gr. 12's. making faces in chapel and writing a letter that all most toasted cw and I's existence. Grade nine will always be remebered 
as tour time. The meeting of the bioys and demonstrating our selves as Canadian coniseurs of many things. Boys=Trouble and their was plenty 
of It like going out to the golf course with Mr. Lucky and getting in way too deep, m.h thanx . E.c was the start of unexplored territory and the 
name rookie really developed it's meaning. Special thanx always goes to to and a.a. Dyre test wholy that must of been a record for me and Corona the magical tropical girl, tall, thin and always a good time. Memones of the boys were always best when meeting at the keg for 
refreshments. Senior years were the best as I could see the end of the tunnel.d.a thanx for all that aqua time at elk lake and I think you owe me a 
slurpee-400m will always be the magic distance. B.B was salvation through the slog memones of camping, maracaibo, car rallies, valentines

Pat Vephula 

The infamous Kulaputt (Pat) Vephula of Bangkok. Thailand came to SMUS three years ago "really enjoying" his stay. Although not 
having any idea what to expect or do, he soon became known for maintaining his OWN style by his own walk, words, clothes and 
music. Although not involving himself and never staying on campus after school, he somehow became recognized by everyone for 
maintaining his funky hairstyle, consistently trying to have more bottles of cologne than anyone else, continuing his weekend routine for 
the last three years, and for his unmatched pool skills (to Bui and Chu, you know I'm da best!!). Dunng his stay at Harvey House, the 
people that knew him usually had one question on their mind: "Yo Pat! Do you have new ones?" He soon took over Saitoman's "Ego" 
making it even larger by looking at the mirror for hours and no one will ever forget his philosophies on women and life. He will always 
remember hanging out with the Old Crew - Sach, T, Domino. Chu, Flip, Flavio, Danny, and Henry ~ I'll never forget ya! Especially to Ris, 
thanks for everything you've done for me and for the good times we had. Yet at the same time he will never forget the New crew - 
LEM, MO, FLY, VAS, Kevin, U-Kawa, Dave, Lance, and Ese Nen, - it's been a long cool nde. To the Koreans - JHK, JWK, and KTK 
and to the Cantonese - D-Tang and Gordon. I'd like to recognize the Grad of 96' - Saito, Vincent, Bui, and Ese Campos. Finally to 
LEM, MO, and FLY, you know I'm Da Man!!

Ivan Wan 

From grade 8 to 1 2, Ivan has been a "boarder-lifer" in SMU. And although he never really got down to school work like he is suppose to. 
he got through the years with more than he needs. Sports; from Basketball in the winter to Rugby in the spring. Musical; from playing the 
trumpet at 7:30 a.m. to choral singing 'The Lord's Prayer" in Chapel. Leadership; from Head of Harvey House to Day Prefect... all of 
which Ivan gained in SMU from day one to graduation. Relentless, determined, and hard working are what he is made out of. Many fun 
times with D.E.I.V, (Danny Tang, Eric Hung, Ivan Wan, Vince Law) for 4 years, from Sliver Stars (2 days ski - 3 days rest) to the rugby 
field, too bad it didn't make out at grad. Will remember roommates Henry W., Luis C, and Dan S.. Special thanks to Bruce K., Ted A., 
the Jones, and the Johnsons, whose helped Ivan through hard time and shared special memories. Basketball motto: "Offence wins 
games, defence wins Championships!" "Dream Senior-B-ball-starting-line-up": Hsu Ming Hung, Ivan Wan, Jo Ng, Ji Hoon, and Shingo. 
Never forget England-Scotland rugby tour with Wilson Chu. Cori L., Joanne P., Donna L, David L.,TomT., Mark H., Michelle H., Sylvia 
S., Sze On-On. Yvonne A.. Susan S., Vanessa Y.. Josh W., the Js' brothers. Sunny K.. Martin J., Chris L.. Carol W., Simon L., and Mark

Keir Wilmui 

It has been 12 years since I first arrived at the Junior school and looking back, a lot of things have changed. Obviously, I have grown up . i 

body at least you can decide if I have in mind!), and my circle of friends has changed many times. When I look at the Grade one kids 

today, It is hard for me to believe that I was once that small. I was once so foolish and gullible (hehehe). and that I once looked that cute n 
those little gray shorts. But I would like to think that I have not changed completely. I hope that there still exists in me a bit of that wide- 
eyed innocence and carefree jubilance that all the Grade ones seem to have. I hope that I still don't take myself or life too seriously — after 
all. they're both pretty bizarre when you really examine them. And of course. I hope I never get to the point where I can't enjoy a good 
game of kissing tag now and again . ) When I look back 12 years from now. what will I want to keep from whom I am today? I have 
confidence that I'll still love to slack, still be a helpless and obsessive flirt, and that I'll be equally cheesy. Maybe III even figure out how to 

talk a bit less and listen a bit more, I certainly hope that I'll always remain sassy but at the same time, strangely _irreverent_. However. 

no matter what happens. I'm sure that even 50 years from now I'll still have a smile on my face and a bit of that Grade 1 immatunty left in 
me. How can one condense 12 years of life into one 332-word yearbook write-up? Everyone else seems to love quotes so hey, who am I to 
buck the trend?

Starting SMU in grade one enforced a prep root upon myself. This in addition with watching too many 80's movies and 
sitcoms inspired me to bring back the "Brat Pack". Snowboarding, rock climbing, mountaineering and kayaking inspired 
me to work a little harder, get into a good school and live the rest of my life trying to "work less and get paid more" - IB. As 
long as you have the fever you'll never be a basket weaver.

Ah Mo tirst came to SMU in grade 1 1 . and the first thing that fascinated her was a certain basketball player. I,W. In no time, she fell into the river of love with her

always lip toe at mid-night. not to wake the dead, never thought of avenging the underground musicians (J.H,. D.S.) who woke both her and her roommate up early 

in the morning and would never shut up when they re studying. She's a mid-night chef and she sen/es her fnend in her sexy underwear Weekends' night are feasts

Her attitude in class Mo's unique way of teaming in class hasn't been approved by teachers yet. She listens in class with her eyes shut. Like an enlightened Buddah. 

she's able to absorb knowledge and yet her face shows an expression of calm peace Sometimes when she's attending in the Gardin. you might see her watering 

her notes, hoping speciation will occur, but it resuNed in a puddle everytime To all the house-parents and teachers, "her grade was not affected "

What a year!! Following on the terrific accomplishments of 1995-96 (two 
BC championships), the school went one better this time round with an amazing 
three provincial titles. In early November, by virtue of a 1-0 win over Collingwood, 
the Senior Girls Field Hockey squad successfully defended their BC crown, while, 
in March in Port Alberni, the Junior Boys Basketball group capped a dominating 
34-2 campaign with a convincing victory over Brookswood in the provincial title 
game. Then, at somewhat long odds, on the final Saturday of May, the 1st XV, 
by defeating Shawnigan 27-17 in the final, joined the 1991 and 1992 teams as 
BC Rugby champions. 

There were numerous other successes as well. A great number of athletes again represented the 
school in some 15 sports. Both the Senior Girls and Boys Soccer teams came within a goal of reaching 
the provincial Final Fours, and, under the direction of Mr. Dave Fisher, there was a continued revival 
of cricket. The Tennis team defied the odds to place 4th at the BC Tournament, and the Senior Girls 
Basketball squad, in its first year in the AAA ranks reached the Island final and then provincial 
championships. Likewise, an overachieving band of Cross Country runners also reached the BCs. 

With both the New and Old Gyms operating efficiently, and with the surface of the playing fields 
continuing to improve, scheduling for both PE and Athletics was again much simpler than in past years. 

Many kudos must go to a talented group of coaches, who once more went well beyond the call of duty 
to produce quality players and teams. Likewise, thanks to all the support staff personnel who toiled so 
unselfishly behind the scenes. 

To the graduates, thank you and best of luck in the future. To those returning, continue the high 
traditions set by those who have gone before you.

It was quite a year. Despite considerable preseason pressure and expectations, the team met all challenges in winning 34 of 36 games, and all 
seven tournaments entered including the BC Invitational in mid March in Port Alberni. 

The squad, a number of whom had suffered through a disappointing season a year before, had talent, size and depth, and put all of these 
characteristics to good use throughout. The only two games lost were to perennial rival Vancouver College in early December, and then in league 
play to Claremont. This latter defeat was balanced by three sound victories over the same opponent in tournament action, while the hoped for 
rematch with College never materialized as the Mainlanders were upset by St. Thomas More in a local playoff, and so never reached the provincial 

Through the season, point guard Danny Boticki solidified his position as one of the elite U16 players in BC with a series of commanding 
performances, and was named BC Tournament MVP in Port Alberni. Also in the backcourt. Cam Clark added much improved shooting to his usual 
fine passing and heads up play, while 6'5" posts Jon Gainor and Richard Greenwood, with their all round ability, gave all opposition matchup 
difficulties. Rounding out the starting five was newcomer Mike Wighton, who, while struggling at times offensively, was a fit and tenacious 

Off the bench, posts Kevin Simon and Craig Kilshaw were invariably competitive and effective, with guards Milan Mrdjenovich and Tim Street 
equally able. Grade 9 Jason Reeve was plagued by illness much of the year, but contributed on many occasions with his sound shooting, and Josh 
Lam improved out of all proportion. Finally. 6'4" post Ryan Jennings also was making a telling contnbution before succumbing to injury in early 

Thanks also to manager Kevin Morin for all his hard work, and, of course to co coaches Mike Shaw and Mischa Greenwood, who had as much 
to do with the success of the team as any of the players. 

Next year will bring new challenges to the players moving to the Senior ranks, as they become part of a squad which should again be in 
provincial title contention.

It was definitely a season of ups and downs. Plagued by extreme inexperience and, not surprisingly, inconsistent 
perimeter play, the team competed very well to be one basket away from qualifying for the Island Tournament. 

All the players improved, with posts Kat Watson , Vania Gamache and Krystal O'Byrne all good enough to move up a 
thin depth Senior squad at season's end. Of the others, Sarah Turner, Carly Somerset, and Jessa Jennings all were 
prone to mistake under pressure, but did enough to suggest all will be solid players in ther future. 

Many thanks to 1996 alumnus Ms. Roxanne Boult for her many hours of coaching, and also to team sponsor Mrs. Jean 

Hopefully, the crucial lessons about commitment and constant practice will have been learned for future seasons. Best 
of luck.

It was never going to be the easiest of seasons, as a young and inexperienced squad battled through a trying year. A final record of 10-19 was the 
school's poorest in a decade, and for the first time in that period, the team failed to reach the Island AAA tournament. 

However, despite inconsistent play and the disappointment of the final week, much progress was, in fact, made. Indeed, all the players are to 
be commended from recovering from the wreckage of a 2-10 pre Christmas record, which included an 0-2 start in league, and a desperate 
performance in the Dover Bay Tournament, in which the group looked about as far away from a legitimate AAA basketball team as it was possible 
to be. Indeed, the group then bounced back to win six of eleven league games in the New Year, and was in contention for Island qualification until 
the final play day of the season. 

Not surprisingly, the starting five, for a whole variety of reasons was never settled, though guards Chris Noel and Shingo Hirao, the latter our 
most dangerous scorer and therefore heavily guarded all year, saw the majority of action. Ed Fairhurst, who though limited by poor shooting 
mechanics, did many other thins well, was the 3 man. with Grade lis Nate l^illar and Steve Tate in the post. Off the bench, when healthy, Tye 
Spicer was a streaky scorer, and Ryota Yukawa a good ballhandler. Up front, Steve Romanchuk was never hesitant to do the blue collar work, 
while Glen Gibbons, after a very slow start to the season, played some good stretches. Also, Mike Danskin, Adam Dowhy, Ivan Wan and Sunny 
Kim practiced hard throughout and made the most of playing opportunities. 

The highlight of the season was a dramatic, come from behind 71-67 win over Mi. Douglas (who went on to finish 9th in BC). Perhaps the 
turning point (the wrong way) came in the Police Tournament in early February, when, after playing extremely well against a talented Carihi outfit, 
the team frittered away a ten point lead to lose 65-62. The players seemed never to recover from this reverse, and two crucial league games 
against Parkland and Spectrum subsequently went a begging. 

Thanks to all the players, and to manager Ben Johnson, for sticking doggedly to the task. Thanks also to a band of scorekeepers, led by Chris 
Stolarski, who covered so many games so effortlessly. 

To those returning, prepare to be under the microscope once again, as with an influx of talented juniors, the team should again be in Island 
and provincial contention.

It was with some trepidation that the team moved up to the AAA ranks this season, as much to guarantee a solid schedule as for any other 
reason. In the end, it proved a good decision as the team won a number of key games at the right times en route to finishing 2nd on the Island and 
reaching the BC Tournament. 

Among the best performances of the year were a 64-61 loss to then provincially #2 ranked Hentage Park, and, having lost twice by a single 
point to archrival Mt. Douglas, turning the tables on them 59-56 in the City playoffs to virtually ensure BC qualification. Then, in the Island final 
against Lambrick Park, a spirited effort had the team leading early in the fourth quarter before fading away to lose 57-47. 

The main disappointment of the year came at the BCs, where it seemed many of the players (the notable exceptions being Kristina Kerr and 
Carys Jones) were either very tentative or happy just to have qualified. A first round matchup with Heritage Park should have been a closely 
contested affair, but a general hesitancy resulted in a 20+ point defeat. Relegated to the consolation round, the team won just one of the three 
remaining games to finish 12th. 

In the starting five, guards Jo Nash and Deanna Age were, when on song, as good as any pair in BC, with the former a solid ballhandler and 
defensive ballhawk, and the latter an excellent outside shooter. Up front, Kim Lobb displayed great athleticism, and should be a star in her senior 
season, while posts Kerr and Emily Clough battled all year against much larger opposition. 

Off the bench. Carys Jones often provided the necessary spark, while Kathryn Wynn was also a thoroughly dependable and versatile per- 
former. Kanoux Larsen. Coille Atchley. and Donna Lee did not receive much opportunity in games due to the difficult nature of the schedule, but 
all improved and are to commended for their contributions. Likewise, Kathryn Watson. Vania Gamache and Krystal O'Byrne all played a good role 
when moved up on completion of their Junior season. 

IVIy thanks to all the players, to assistant coaches Ms. Sue Tomio and Mr. Brian Chang, and to manager Carol Lewis. Most of all, the sincere 
gratitude of everyone must be extended to Mr, Gary Laidlaw, who as the team GM looked after so capably a myriad of off court affairs. 

Best of luck next year to all.

The inaugural season of Bowling proved to be a great success. Though largely inexperienced, the tean' 
eventually improved the strikes to gutterballs ratio, and with 24 competitors, far outdistanced all rival 
schools in terms of participation. 

Following the regular season, the team of Chris Lau, Charles Huang and Yusuf Harsono qualified for 
the City Tournament, while the girls also contributed splendidly. Indeed, on an individual basis, Susan 
Sin, Olivia Limbu and Stephanie Anderson all figured prominently. 

Further congratulations to Colleen Saffrey who won an Optimist Club of Victoria scholarship. 

Continued good luck to all next year.

The 1997 season featured a young and initially inexperienced team. However, with much hard work 
and countless practices, in a variety of inclement weather conditions, the squad advanced its cardio- 
vascular fitness and running techniques to finish with some satisfying results. 

The seven races in the City league provided the opportunity for all the team to compete in a wide 
variety of races. Race sites included treacherous obstacles such as puddles which could have passed 
for small lakes, not to mention gale force winds, snow, sleet, hail, mud, and more mud. 

All age groups faced stiff competition throughout the season, with both the Junior Boys and Girls 
placing third in the City. At the Island level, the Boys gained a fourth place finish, with the Girls in fifth. 
Excellent individual performances were recorded by Heather Orr, Brian Moss, Mike Wighton and 
Jamie Saunders. 
Thanks and congratulations to all those who took part. Best of luck in upcoming seasons.

Two main factors made the 1996 team very successful, as commitment to practice and races allied with 
great depth resulted in tremendous individual and team improvement. 

The boys squad of 24 runners finished a strong third in the City competition, and them, in the ultra tough 
Island meet, ran exceptionally well to place 4th. Fine performances were recorded by Mike Wighton, 
Dave Wilson, Rob Bateman, Yoshi Nakanishi, Chris Lau, Andrew Williamson , Alan Lin and Pat Gill. 
This group, competing in a provinicial field of over 350 runners, then again did well to finish 15th overall 
in the BC meet. 

Next year's goals will include fielding a consistently strong girls team and again securing a berth to the 
provincial meet. The relative youth of this season's group, combined to some talented Junior racers, 
should be a recipe for success. 
Thank you to all for a tremendous effort.

Mr. David Fisher 

Happily, it has been a terrific season for cricket at SMUS this year, as some 55 students (including 15 girls) took the oppor- 
tunity to play. 

Though the win-loss record (particularly in the "Mid-Week" competition) was jeopardized to a large degree by the decision to 
involve equally, as much as possible, all team members, this was a positive decision. Indeed, it was very pleasing to note 
how all players' skills developed rapidly over the twelve developmental games. Nonetheless, several excellent individual 
batting performances were recorded by, among others, Danny Boticki, Joel Bowman, Pat Frisby, Nick Vagvolgyi, Victor 
Drohomerecki, Nick Chng and David Ingle. On the bowling front, Emily Clough, Ryan Munroe, Sina Noureddin, Bryce 
Soderberg and particularly Mahat Johnson proved effective. 

Of note were the two all girls encounters vs the VDCA women, two Junior (U15) vs St. Georges, and a 2nd XI game against 
Stelly's. Unfortunately, both scheduled 1st XI matches vs St. Georges were rained out. 

The Alumni game, played May 1 1 , was very exciting. Unfortunately, inconsistent fielding and several dropped catches 
allowed the Alumni, led by Mr. Jeremy Goodwin's 53 to reach 162-7 declared. Despite a spirited 24 from both Matt Turner 
and Grade 8 Glenn Roberts, the 1st XI was soon 87-8, before a superb rearguard action by Drohomerecki (36) and 
Vagvolgyi (20 not out) almost pulled the game out of the fire. 

To finish, the match vs the Staff XI was also very entertaining, though some rash batting by the top of the order put the team 
in a hole at 28-6. Fortunately, another great stand, this time from Vagvolgyi and Johnson, allowed the 1st XI to reach 108 
from the allotted 23 overs. This total, however, was unlikely to ever be enough, and so it proved. Mr. Grenfell Featherstone, 
in his last match for the Staff, opened with a series of crushing boundaries, leading the way to a comfortable six wicket 

Thanks to all who took part for a most enjoyable season

The sport continued its growth in popularity on Vancouver Island, and now draws a very high number of partici- 
pants. This year, in both the Junior Girts and Boys leagues, there was a healthy increase in nders, which made for 
much toughe. competition. 

The entire SMUS team was comprised of first year riders, who, did remarkably well. In the five race Girts senes, 
Clare Hall-Patch and Genny Burdett, who finished fourth and fifth respectively, rode aggressively against some of 
the best young cyclists in the province. On the Junior Boys side, Evan Crawford, Ben Acton and Kentaro Guthne 
learned a great deal which will stand them in good stead in the future. Combined, the two teams placed 8th out of 17 

In the Senior Boys, Nathan Miller, through his determination, consistency and technical ability, placed seventh 
overall and was named team rider of the year. An overall 3rd place continued the school's strong pertormance in the 
Senior category. 

Special thanks to Mr. Mike Ison, who helped as team trainer, and to Mr. Larry Borgerson, who acted as team 
manager and provided excellent first aid to all in the league.

No doubt this short synopsis will do no justice to the 1 996 team, which, under great pressure, managed the difficult task of repeating as BC AA 
Champions. The team received more than a few bumps along the road, suffering several defeats locally before rebounding to win an 11 th straight 
Island title. This accomplished, the players then performed splendidly in Vancouver at the provincials, coming back after a reverse in pool play to 
defeat a talented Collingwood squad 1-0 in the final. 

Co captains Deanna Age and Knstina Kerr set a fine example for the remaining players, and were well supported by the remaining seniors. 
Grade 1 1 striker Kim Lobb was a key part of the attack, while newcomer Kelly Cox had the distinction of finishing off a superb four way passing 
play in scoring the only goal in the BC final. At the back. Grade 10 goalie Kim Smith was rock solid, with no one stop more crucial than a spec- 
tacular toe save late in the same provincial title game. 

Many thanks also to Jeff Hunt for his coaching expertise and commitment. To all the players, congratulations again, and best wishes in all your 
future hockey plans.

The 1997 season began with great promise as several new students proved to be fine golfers. The 
arrival of Chris Holenderski from Saudi Arabia and Scott McCarten from the Middle School strength- 
ened the team. Unfortunately during the season, some of the older players were unavailable be- 
cause of injuries or other sporting obligations and as a result, the team did not fare well either in the 
Lower Island Tournament or in the I.S.A. Tournament. The team did have an opportunity to salvage 
the season in the Staff-Student Match but the staff proved to be too powerful winning by a score of 
5-2. To Olivia, Michelle. Enc and Blair, who are graduating, and to all the others, I would like to say

The SMUS Rowing team had a most successful debut season on Elk Lake during the fall. After competing in three regattas and 24 overall races, 
all involved had gained tremendous experience, suffered through every type of weather imaginable, learned how to steer (almost!!) and learned 
the ecstasy of "the last 250" and the agony of "over the heads and up." (VIost importantly, all learned the true meaning of teamwork and the 
invaluable lesson of hard work.

to continue their careers with the Victoria City Rowing Club in the spring,

Few school teams in recent seasons have experienced such as astonishing turnaround in their fortunes as that 
achieved by this year's 9A XV. Following substantial defeats in the opening games vs St. Georges and Brentwood, 
even the most ardent supporter could be forgiven for wondering if the group had embarked upon a tryless season. 
Fortunately, such dire predictions proved unfounded. A renewal of commitment, together with a determination to 
improve skill levels, led to a resurgence of the team's fortunes. 

The turning point of the season, a splendid try scored in the opening minute of the home game against Brentwood, 
provided the confidence and stamina to sustain the necessary effort until Tyson Johnson's last minute conversion 
sealed a memorable victory. Two wins against Shawnigan then produced the unlikely situation of a possible shared 
ISA championship - if St. Georges could be defeated on their home ground. Victory in Vancouver, however, proved 
not to be - but only just!! Resolute home tackling on their own line denied Jin Hyuk Chung and others a match winning 
try a minute before the final whistle. 

Chung, Kevin Simon, Kentaro Guthrie, and Jonathon Gordon, ably supported by the rest of the fonwards, all had 
excellent seasons. In the back division, Scott McCarten held the defence together with his unflinching tackling, while 
Mike Passmore, with his powerful running, and Itsuki Hayashi, with his deceptive pace and guile, provided the most 
potent attacking options. 

The 9B XV, like their A counterparts, recovered well from a calamitous opening match against St. Georges to 
complete a season of three wins and three losses. David Ingle, Nic Hume and Eric Goldstein formed a solid base for 
the scrum, with Eric Findlay and Andrew Fairman developing into a tidy halfback pairing. The many newcomers to the 
squad, such as Merlin Ho, deserve credit for their consistent enthusiasm and marked improvement. 

Special thanks to Mr. Chns Spicer, for performing miracles in transforming the B group, and to Mr, Ian Hyde-Lay

The 1 996 SMUS Colts Rugby season was undoubtedly a great success for all concerned. Overall 44 players put on the Colts uniform, 1 2 for their very first rugby expenence. In a total 
of 27 games, 1 22 tnes were scored spread t)etween 25 drfferent players. More importantly, the support that each player gave to the whole squad led to a tremendous spirit within the 
group, enabling the Colts tradition to be continued 

The "B" team began their season with an early exhibition win over the Grade 9A side, but lost heavily in their opening Independent School match against St Georges However, 
they bounced back the following week with a convincing victory away at Brentwood, only lor the 9A's to turn the tables in their rematch. The "B" side continued their up and down 
performances with a return 5-5 tie to Brentwood and a lop-sided result away at Shawnigan Lake, but where the team never stopped playing. The "B" squad played well in an exhibition 
game against Lansdowne's top side, only to suffer a further loss to St Georges However, the "B" squad rallied to finish their season with everyone playing in a fine performance and 
sound victory over a weakened Shawnigan side While not wanting to lake any credit away from the whole team effort, the play of captain and scnjmhalf Graeme Snowden, along with 
fellow backs Jon Preston at flyhalf. and Taylor Davis and James Bigwood in the centres does deserve mention. The front-row of Lucas Rankin, Stephan Chapheau, and Nick Issac, 
lock Lawrence Lee, and backrow players Ere Grant and Ryan Jennings also deserve credit. 

Following a pre-season exhibition win over Glenlyon/Norfolk School, and a Greater Victoria league victory over Stellys, the "A" team were a little weary in their opening Indepen- 
dent School fixture against St Georges Nonetheless, they did more than enough to ease out a victory, only to repeat a lethargic first half effort against Claremont. However, a few stem 
half-time words and a refocus of tactics resulted in a solid second half performance and victory The pressure eased somewhat with a blow-out win away at Brentwood, with the team 
now knowing what they were capable of producing. This would be put to test in the next game, an exhibition match against arch-nvals Oak Bay Again, through sticking to the nght 
tactics and playing together, a convincing victory resulted Unfortunately, however, the team lost outstanding flyhalf Danny Boticki with injury for the remainder of the season. A 
readjusted side gained a further league win over Esquimalt, earning the team a well-desen/ed half-term break. 

Gale force winds and torrential ram greeted the "A" side in their league match against Glenlyon/Norfolk School. In such conditions anything can happen but a top second half 
performance into the wind secured a cold yet well-eamed victory The second Brentwood match again proved to be a blow-out win, but enabled the players to become more 
accustomed to some positional changes before the upcoming big matches. The first of these big games was the league encounter with Oak Bay. Both teams were a little wary of each 
other earfy and some scrappy rugby resulted, before the Colts team stretched out to a comfortable win Next up was the away ISA flxture at Shawnigan Lake, a team similarly 
undefeated thus far Pertiaps a little jaded, the "A" side never really got into full gear and gave away some soft tnes to lose by a big margin. However, on the positive side, they never 
stopped playing and did get the final score This was the flrsi ever loss for many in the team and some soul-searching was required, but rather now than later. A repeat closely 
contested away win at St. Georges followed setting the team up well for the Victona playoffs. 

Glenlyon/Norfolk School were the semi-flnal opponents and many quality tnes were scored in a healthy victory to lead the "A" team into a place in the City Final against Oak Bay. 
The cold weather threatened to play a part in proceedings but the ram and wind held off. However, the Colts were unable to hold off Oak Bay for long, and although being ahead earfy 
in the game it was not to be our day A disappointing and unusually error and panic filled effort that needed to be put nght before the Island tournament, and as fate would have it our 
first opponent would be Shawnigan Lake School 

With the belief that a win over Shawnigan would ultimately win the Island title, much strategy and mental preparation went into this rematch to bnng out the best in all of the players. 
Both sides began the game nervously, with the Colts seemingly gaming the upper hand only to allow a late first half try and be down 5-7 at the inten/al. Again after some uncompromis- 
ing words at the break, the Colts went into the second half knowing that they would have to make full use of any sconng opportunities This they duly did with two earfy second half tries, 
before hanging on with great conviction and fervour to gam an upset 19-12 victory over tournament favourites. With much jubilation m the air, the players knew that more tough work 
would needed in the next days. Dover Bay from Nanaimo was the semi-final opponent and the Colts continued their efforts from the previous day, racing out to a big lead to secure a 
place in the Island final against Oak Bay, with a chance to turn the tables and finish #1 The final was played in tnje Canadian conditions with snow drifting in, and the Colts side playing 
some quality fifteen a-side mgby going out to a 1 5-3 lead at the half, and continuing on for a thorough and convincing 25-8 victory to claim the Vancouver Island Junior Boys Rugby 
Championship, last claimed by SMUS in 1990. 

Again, the emphasis on team commitment and dedicafion, as well as fun, skill improvement, increased fitness levels, and a greater understanding of the game of rugby, showed 
itself in the camaradene built up by each team and the Colts spirit as a whole Without wishing to focus on individuals, some do need special menfion. On the stafisfics side, Craig 
Kilshaw was top try scorer with 14, while Tim Street was the points leader with 12 tnes and a further 88 points with his boot Close behind in the try department were Reid Chambers, 
Erik Larsen, and David Hsu with 13, 11, and 9 tnes apiece The whole "A" team fonward pack deserve special menfion, especially the foraging front-row play of hooker John Andrachuk, 
prop An Shortt, lock Matthieu Boyd, flankers Milan Mrdjenovich and Enk Larsen, and number eight Cam Clark. In the backs, the tenacious play of captain and scmmhalf Jason Owen, 
transplanted flyhalf Craig Kilshaw, nght wing Bnan Moss, and fullback Tim Street was always notable 

Congratulafions must also go to John Andrachuk, An Shortt, Cam Clark, Danny Boticki. Reid Chamtjers, Jamie Saunders. Tim Street, and Grade 9's Jonathan Gordon and Kevin 
Simon, who were all selected to the Vancouver Island Independent Schools (SMUS, Shawnigan Lake, Brentwood, GNS) Under 16 team to attend the Higashi-Osaka City's Foundation 
30th Anniversary Junior Rugby Under 1 6 International Fnendship Games in March 1 997 in Osaka, Japan. It is an honour to be selected for such a side, and this inaugural all expenses 
paid tnp in particular, and I know that you will all do the school, your parents, and yourselves proud 

Special thanks to coaches Mr. Peter Tongue and Mr Chuck Shergold for their commitment, enthusiasm and knowledge. Thanks also to parents for your greatly appreciated 
support and encouragement. Finally to all players, thank you for efforts and I wish you the very best in life and in rugby.

With tew returnees and limited experience! little was expected from this year's Senior Rugby crew. How wrong one can be! Beginning in early January the 40+ players practiced and trained 
through all weather conditions in search of starting positions. Inter-squad trials soon took place and the teams began to take shape. 

The 2nd XV lacking continuity due to rarely having the same line-up for two straight games, played an up and down series of nine matches. Despite solid efforts against the more athletic 1st 
XV's of Belmont, Stellys. and Dover Bay, losses were recorded as was also the case against the veny strong Lord Byng and Shawnigan Lake 2nd XVs. However, in a three game series with cross- 
town Esqulmalt, top team performances resulted in three victories, with over fifty points being scored in the final encounter Perhaps the season's best peformance came m a one point loss to the 
Carson Graham 2nd XV, where stout defense and youthful enthusiasm showed the way Top performers included Grade 10's An Shortt at hooker, Jason Owen at scrumhalf, and fullback/wing Tim 
Street Likewise props George Pemberton and Sunny Kim, and locks Peter and Eric Kim and Chns Stephens all played well, while newcomers Helmut Lee on the wing, and Joe Gardener and 
Omar Alasaly in the backrow improved markedly Finally centre Andrew Williamson, and wing Matt Turner proved useful attackers. 

With limited expectations, the 1st XV began the season with promising exhibition results over GP Vanier, GNS. Dover Bay, Parkland, and the visiting Father Bressani school from Ontario. 
However, twenty-two points down in fifteen minutes against arch rival Oak Bay was not the best way to start the annual "Boot Game" Vet the team fought back bravely and finished strongly to 
score at the final whistle, only to fall 25-24. leaving much to ponder over spnng break. 

Immediately upon return, the 1st XV opened against Semiahmoo in the inaugural BC Premier Senes, a competition involving nine of the top sides in the province In a low-sconng affair, the 
odd fortuitous bounce and a last second Ed Fairhurst penalty produced a 10-8 win With the next few weeks certain to set the tone for the remainder ot the season, some very hard work was done, 
including the all-important Mt Tolmie hill sessions, and post-game video evaluations. A confidence building Premier victory over Earl l^arnott led the team into a clash with then #1 ranked Carson 
Graham Direct forward play and aggressive defense resulted in a resounding 22-13 win. With some starters resting and reserves getting a needed run, a victory was then achieved in the 
Lower Island competition over Belmont 

Two Premier Series games followed In the wet. behind Fairhurst's 31 points, the team defeated Magee. before a lop-of-the-table clash with Lord Byng Points came early and by half-time the 
1st XV led by 20 points The patterns of play and discipline faltered in the second half, and as the gap closed and the pressure mounted, the mistakes began to proliferate. With two minutes to 
play, Byng scored for a deserving win 27-23 This defeat provided imponant lessons, and in many ways was directly responsible for later successes 

Amidst the heavy schedule came the BC Sevens Tournament With |ust a few days preparation, the squad showed well in its pool wins over Robert Bateman. Cowichan, and Magee. The 
second day playoff games provided much sliffer opposition and resulted m losses to Carson Graham and Abbotsford Nevertheless, the tournament had been a more than worthwhile experience 
and was followed by two lop-sided Lower Island victories over Claremont and Mt Doug before the much anticipated rematch with Oak Bay 

There was so little between the two sides that the team making the fewest mistakes would likely gam the upper hand So it proved, as with two SMUS errors, Oak Bay reversed a 6-0 halt- time 
deficit to edge away for a 1 5-6 win Again the lessons were absorbed and some changes made prior to the Alumni Day clash against Shawnigan Lake In front of over 500 fans, the 1 st XV jumped 
out of the blocks paced by ferocious tackling and an Adam Dowhy hat-trick of tries Shawnigan clawed their way back, and a heart-stopping second half saw Shawnigan ahead by 2 points with ten 
minutes remaining With much delight, another late Fairhurst penalty helped snatch a memorable 37-36 victory. 

Claremont was no match in the Lower Island semi-final, setting up a third encounter with Oak Bay, this time for the Howard Russell Cup. Again the first half was a seesaw battle with the team 
ahead 14-7 at the interval. Despite playing into the wind in the second half the players kept the pressure on for a 24-19 win A third place in the BC Premier Series was then secured with a 
resounding 37-5 away win at Abbotsford, After some final tinkering, the BC Tournament loomed large in everyone's sights. 

A big and physical Penticton side were the first opponents at the B C 's. Some slick second half handling produced the tries necessary to pull away for a 29-5 win. This produced a quarter-final 
match with Oak Bay Despite a fast start, the team trailed by 5 points with ten minutes remaining. Not to be outdone, a superb multi-phase try produced a 25-23 win and a spot against Lord Byng in 
the semi-final. In torrential ram and wind, the XV, hard on defense much of the game |usl wouldn't crack. Tackling, courage, and character were all to the fore as waves of Byng attacks were 
halted Finally, the team got back into the game and, lor the third time in the season. Fairhurst slotted a match winning penalty The provincial final against Shawnigan Lake beckoned. 

In front of over 1000 spectators at UBC Thunderbird Stadium, the 1st XV began play as if their lives depended upon the outcome Converted tries by Fairhurst and Andrew Dewar secured an 
early lead but Shawnigan came back to make it 14-7 at the break Shawnigan then scored 10 straight second half points to draw level 1 7-1 7 Drawing on amazing energy reserves, the players 
steadied, and a late Fairhurst penalty and spectacular Ryota Yukawa try guaranteed a 27-17 provincial championship triumph 

The dedication and desire of the whole forward pack was noteworthy Hooker John Andrachuk. rugged props Andrew Dewar and Adam Dowhy (team award recipient and 14 tnes), ball-winners 
Gavin Barry and Steve Romanchuk and flankers Emir Mehinagic. Milan Mrd|enovich. and Alec Johnston, and aggressive **3 Erik Larsen (10 tries) played superbly. Behind them captain and 
scrumhalf Ed Fairhurst was selected to the BC Commissioner's XV and his season sconng tally of 31 5 points including a team leading 23 tries (along with 1 75 points from the boot) almost defied 
belief. Outside him, the steady play of flyhalf Mike Danskin was crucial and he, along with centres Dan Sander, Jeff Vertes. and Quentm Bregg plugged the holes and kept the ball m front of 
the forwards Wings Colin Parrott (10 tries) and Ryota Yukawa, and fullback Chris Noel ran hard and improved defensively with each game 

In closing, thank you to all the players for such an enjoyable and successful season. Much was learned about commitment, loyalty, integrity, team spiht. and character To the graduates, best 
wishes in your rugby careers and may you keep involved with the sport. To the many returnees, look forward to next season to more and more hard work. Great resolve will be required to take on 
the new challenges that await. To the parents, thank you for all your tremendous support and encouragement. Final gratitude to fellow coaches Mr Peter Tongue. Mr Ian Hyde-Lay, and Mr Chuck 
Shergold for their expert tutelage and assistance throughout the year.

The team got off to a very slow start this season, playing several strong teams while attempting to assemble a squad from 
those players who had not left town for the Spring break. However, with a return to full strength in April, solid leadership 
from the Grade 10s allied to good goalkeeping from Danny Boticki produced a string of victories. In this run, the defensive 
four, led by Brian Moss, played very well, while Craig Kilshaw, Cam Clark, Graham Snowden, Scott Brown and Itsuki 
Hayashi supplied the offensive punch. 

The team entered the sixteen team City knockout tournament with a favorable draw from the unique format - team 
names drawn from a hat - and cruised into Round 2 with a 5-0 win over Lansdowne. A superb individual marker by Chris 
Callender, in the 65th minute, was then the difference over rival Lambrick Park. Despite a disappointing 2-0 semifinal loss 
to Claremont, the group still had one final chance at the Islands, but, though outplaying Spencer for long periods, the 
subsequent 2-0 defeat left the team one win short of the Island finals. 

A skilled core of Grade 9 players will form the foundation of another contending team in 1998. The Grade 10s moving to 
the Senior level should complement a number of talented returnees in what could be the school's best side ever. 

Thanks to all for their time, effort and commitment. 

Mr. Peter Leggatt 
Mr. Tony Cordle 


The team enjoyed a very solid season, and but 
for a heartbreaking semifinal shootout loss to 
Lambrick Park, would have won a first ever medal 
at the Island Tournament. 

Overall the squad won eight and drew one of 
thirteen matches, with goalie Sam Lawrence 
recording five shutouts. Individually, all the players 
had their moments, but Kim Smith and Charlotte 
Reid in particular were consistently reliable on 
defence. Carly Somerset and Heather Orr supplied 
depth in the midfield while Jen Woodland and 
Sabrina Loiacono provided most of the offensive 

The team may be proud indeed of a spirited, 
disciplined effort throughout the season. Thanks to 
all for the commitment.

Before the season started the senior players dearly wanted a second chance to return to the BC Tournament and improve on 1995's disap- 
pointing 15th place finish. Still, with many newcomers, and the first month fragmented by injury, inclement weather and numerous school trips, the 
team did not initially jive, and indeed struggled to finish with a record of 5-5-1. This, which included a crucial 0-0 draw with powerful Vic High in the 
penultimate game, resulted in a 6th place league finish, which, as the highest placed AA team, was just enough to qualify for the BCs. 

At the provincials, the team then played some excellent soccer, not actually losing a game in regular time, but still finished 6th overall. A 1-1 
draw with eventual champs Langley in pool play was all that stood between the squad and a Final Four placing. 

Blair Nelson and Chris Noel shared goalkeeping responsibilities throughout the season and together often frustrated opposition forwards. Nate 
tVlillar and Nick Stanger, with help from Gary Tongue, David Lynch, Tye Spicer and f\/like Preston, controlled while the midfield featured captain Ed 
Fairhurst and tenacious Dan Sander. Also in a playmaking role were BC 1st team All Star Ryan Large, l\/like Danskin, and Chns Mavrikos, who 
enjoyed a superb provincial tournament. Finally, the collective speed of strikers Graham Fedorak, Chris Stolarski, Ed Callender and Colin Parrott 
ensured a regular supply of goals. 

Thanks to all the players for their efforts. Best wishes to those returning and to the newcomers for an exciting 1997-98 campaign.

It was an extremely successful season. With the boys a highly commendable 6th in BC last fall, the pressure was on to 
match that performance. The team moved easily thorugh the local competition, though not without some anxious mo- 
ments against Esquimalt in the league semifinals. At the BC Tournament, a 1-0 loss to Langley ended the dream of a 
provincial crown, but the squad rebounded well to defeat CE London and Pnnce George to claim a highly respectable 
5th place finish. Joann Nash, dangerous all season, scored nine of the teams ten goals at the BC's and was named a 
Tourney First All Star, while Ria Mavkrikos was placed on the second team. 

Other notables included Grade 1 1 Carol Lewis and senior Strieker Kristina Kerr. In the absence of Grade 10 Sam 
Lawrence, Carys Jones, Jess White, Emily Clough and Whitney Davis handled the goalkeeping chores by committee. 

Thanks to all who took part, and who played with such spirit, skill and sportmanship.

With many enthusiastic players trying out for the 1996-1997 team, solid progress was made throughout the year. The ISA tournament was held in 
Vancouver, in mid May, with the boys playing at St. George's and the girls at UBC. This proved to be a very successful day for the girls. Comfort- 
able wins over Brentwood and Crofton House put the team into the finals against York House, where Amy Karchut made an amazing comeback 1 - 
5 down to take out the set in a tie-breaker. This produced a 1 st place overall finish in the toumament. The boys, although benefiting from the 
tougher competition, were unable to equal the girls' efforts, placing 4th. With local league matches also concluded, the team then finished a 
commendable 3rd in the City Championships, and qualified for the Island Toumament held at Brentwood and Shawnigan. The first round match, to 
keep the team in the running for the EC's, was a tough encounter against Brentwood. 4-1 down, the players dug deep, particularly Chris 
Holenderski and the boys doubles combination of Dan Ishihara and Lemuel Edillon, to fashion a brilliant 7-4 comeback. Oak Bay then proved to be 
too strong, which left a match verses Mt. Doug for 3rd and 4th, and a place in the provincials. The team, once again, played with commitment, 
determined to turn around two previous league losses. 

Leading by example, the ever reliable Mariko Miller took the team to another victory. After some contusion with the number of Island berths, the 
team was deemed to have qualified for the BC's, which were also held at Shawnigan and Brentwood at the end of May. Convincing wins over 
Magee and MEI resulted in a pool win. Vanessa Lee displayed some fine tennis in her debut singles match and Amy Karchut and Noelle Quin 
proved to be a solid doubles combination. The team then in the semi-finals, defeated Brentwood 6-5, but were well beaten by Little Flower 
AcademyA/ancouver College. A subsequent close loss to Shawnigan in the bronze medal match yielded a 4th place Provincial finish. Well done to 
all the team on an outstanding effort throughout the entire season. Congratulations to Manko Miller on receiving the girls singles award at the BC's 
and for her fine display of leadership. Best of wishes to the team in future years - goodbye and good luck.

The 1997 season centered around a small but very dedicated group of athletes who used the early 
season exhibition meets in April as a springboard for a series of fine performances at the various Island 
and BC meets in late May. 

Depth was the key for the Junior team, and the cumulative efforts of the runners, jumpers and throwers 
resulted in a very competitive 3rd place finish at the City meet and numerous medalists at the Island level. 

In the Senior competitions, the dedication of Dave Wilson and Coille Atchley was noteworthy, and both 
must be congratulated for their maturity and leadership throughout the year. Another asset was manager 
Mike Adam, normally an outstanding performer, but this year unfortunately sidelined by season ending 
foot surgery. 

The season highlight took place at the Senior BC meet, where, after a outstanding performance in the 
high jump, Grade 9 Natalie Lisinski became only the second SMUS athlete ever to win an individual 

The youth, speed and dedication of this year's squad bodes well for the future. Congratulations and 
thanks to all who took part this year.

The Junior Girls team enjoyed the most successful season in school history. Playing in the super tough GVJSSAA 
league, the sqaud progressed deep into the second round of the knockout competition, and only a series of close and 
deeply disappointing losses kept the group from reaching the Island tournament for the first time ever. 

Another season highlight was the ISA tournament, held in mid October. Key wins over Shawnigan, Crofton House 
and York House put the team into the final vs Brentwood, who, to their credit were the better team on the day. 

Captain Vania Gamache gave consistently strong performances all year, and was well supported by setters Sarah 
Turner and Jelena Mrdjenovich. Kelly Dillon and Jo Fairhurst were the strongest servers, while Kathryn Watson, 
Shawna McKee and Joelle Hatton were always fully committed to the tasks of digging and blocking. 

Thanks to all who made such a spirited contribution. Best of luck next season, whether at the Senior or Junior

The team proved something of an enigma this season, capable of playing very well against good opposition, but 
then also able to drop down to the standard of much inferior competition. In the end, this inconsistency proved fatal, 
as the group's hopes of advancing to the Island Tournament were dashed in the City playoffs. 

This last reverse notwithstanding, a number of sound results in league play were achieved. Also, the highly 
competitive ISA Tournament, played at SMUS, produced a creditable 4th place finish, while in the Lake Cowichan 
and Gulf Islanas Invitationals, pool play wins were not consolidated as they might have been in the semifinal rounds. 

Individually, all the players improved, though some still found it difficult to make the sacnfices necessary to per- 
form well on a consistent basis. 

Thanks to graduates Emily Clough, Jen de Hann, Coille Atchley, Andrea Horsman, and Kathryn Wynn. Best of 
luck to those returning.

A life is like a road, and to live a life is to walk all the way until you 
reach the destination. It is not an easy journey; most of it is up-hill, 
and some parts are very steep. There are cracks in the pavement 
that you might trip over, and gaps in the path that you will have to 
leap across. If you do fall, you will have to pick yourself up and 
continue on your way. The route is twisted with frequent curves and 
turns, making the voyage even more chancy because you never 
know what is on the other side of the bend. Furthermore, there are 
not any road signs to warn you of dangers ahead or to give you 
directions. Luckily, you do not have to travel on this journey alone. 
There are many other people struggling to get to the end along with 
you. Some may choose to walk beside you; a few might even offer 
to hold your hand, and because of them, your journey will not be as 
boring nor as difficult. They will come to your aid when you are 
hurt, carry you when you are tired, and help you up if you happen to 
fall. Most of these people that appear by your side will also leave at 
one time or another. They might start to walk at a faster pace and 
leave you behind, or walk too slow and eventually disappear from 
your side, or decide to join another group of people. Some might 
even change direction and wander off the road. On the other hand, 
you may be the one who decides to leave, and walk with someone 
else or by yourself. In any case, it is not so much how you walk 
down the road as who you walk with.

Oh I long, oh I long 

For the sweet green days 

When my fist punched a hole in the sky, 

When reed and gong 

And sea-spawned haze 

Did a dust dance for my eye. 

In the wandering dusk 

With my hand in the stars 

How I would play by the shore 

And sing of my lust 

For the girl of afar 

For whom my mind yearns no more. 

When did this thing come about? 

How was I to know? 

Should I dare to return to that downy sweet bliss? 

Why must the world be so? 

In my mind, in my mind. 

Though the cockroaches fly 

There is airy remembrance bright; 

So in cracks I can find 

The hidden ruby 

Still pregnant with earthly light. 

You make this come out of me. 

You squeeze my soul till the bug red juice flows from my intestines like 

river and ends 

up in the eternal fire, burning, burning for a sulfureous eternity. 

I have chosen to blind myself rather than confront the pain you left me. 

Dame Heavenly you! Why must you be so untouchable, yet infinitely 

You just couldn't be what you seemed. I should have known. But why 

did you lead me 

to emotional suicide? 

On the inside I am screaming, but my cloak of apathy has muted my 

expression and left 

me to writhe alone in my self-made torture. 

If you only had any idea how much pain you caused me, your mind 
would burn out. 

It hurts me to feel pleasure, because you were there in my mind 

assailing me. You 
fireball tongue has ripped out my center and left me a zombie! 

Why didn't you just kill me when I was happy and unafraid? 

I can't enjoy life, but my hearts stops beating and insane hope forces 

me to walk through 

the world dark like a zombie. 

I can choose nappiness, so it's meaningless. 

IVIy greatest fear is apathy, to which I am apathetic, 

I laugh with no reason, smile at my parents' death by my blade, what 

could ever matter 

after you took my soul away. 

All is a swirling storm of bitter indifference. I cannot react to the world. 
I can't car 

I am dead.

Catharsis; the definitive lie. 

The audience feels nothing, learns nothing, 

lives a lie dies a hypocrite. 

Belief is all it is, belief, 

Belief for the sake of belief, 

A transparent attempt to stave of reality. 

Eliot had it right. 

Until "God" spoke to him. 

What a waste of a perfectly good suicide. 

What to do, What to do? 

Cloud my mind, dull my thoughts, 
let ignorance settle in. 
Ah, good old artificiality 

Let Jesus meet Hitler, 

It might answer a few of my questions. 

I'd follow the true light 

but the moths are flocking to it. 

I'm alive so I'm a hypocrite, or maybe just a

You need to look beneath the surface, and you'll see it.

swimming around in King Tut's mummified skull - 

it is a Stealth bomber 

and you'll see it

Trust me. 

Somewhere in this picture there is a Stealth bomber. 
This is not a digital mosaic in 256 colours

This is not God's laughter moving on the face of the waters

Somewhere in this picture there is a Stealth bomber. 

It is not imaginary 


maliciously hiding 

or othenwise deceptive although 

Stealth bombers were always specially designed to avoid 

enemy radar. 

Don't look so surprised. 

This is an honest-to-goodness Stealth bomber 

which you may have seem before on a Hanoi docudrama 

or an autographed Saddam Hussein camouflage T-shirt 

or sketched out a German exercise yard 

in the prison where Hitler had a happy fantasy. 

But that doesn't matter because it's not here to kill you 

it is only playing hide-and-go-seek 

Find it before it finds you - 

after all you can't stand here the whole lunchtime. 

Somewhere in this picture there is a Stealth bomber. 

You lazy fool I told you to concentrate 

you'll never see it 

you don't apply yourself. 

Look at all this sweat 

did I tell you you needed that much effort 

loosen up you're trying too hard. 

Somewhere in this picture there is a Stealth bomber. 

It is not magic 

it is not the Original Chaos 

it is not a mutant angel 

it is not Hiroshima Nagasaki Number Two 

it is not an egg thrown from a skyscraper 

onto a patch of black ice 

it is not 

any of these things 

whether it looks like it doesn't matter 

it is a Stealth bomber - 

it is a Stealth bomber 

and you are going to see it.

I think my soul flew away yesterday 

she's very sensitive and gets upset easily 

last time when this old man in tight pants yelled at her 

she went into hiding for a week 

I think during that time she joined a fitness club or 


and had pumped a bit if iron 

she came back with abs of steel and bulging biceps 

but I recognized her right away 

we had a nice chat when she came home 

and she told me that she had been to heaven 

but I knew that it was only a fitness place 

we got into a fight yesterday 

cuz she said that I was taking up too much space 

I had pushed her into a corner 

but she spat in my eye 

then she bought out a pair of cut out angel's wings 

and flapped off 

right now I have no idea how long she's been gone 

I can hear the loud silence inside my heart 

where she had rented her little apartment 

when she decides to return 

I have to remember to ask her 

what its like to fly 

and if she had a pair of wings for me 

I think that I'd like to fly sometime

At the end of the 2nd term, many students felt that they would like to present 
their own Musical Revue of the past 1 years of Musicals that has been 
performed. Rehearsals took place during the first two weeks of April, and a 
lot of fun and heartache was had by all during this period. Two performances 
were presented in the old gym and everyone involved in this adventure 
enjoyed the challenge of "putting on" a student production.

On March the 15th it snowed. On the same day a group of 7 students and myself were preparing to leave Victoria for 
the slightly warmer climes of France: country rich in history and culture, land of chateaux, baguettes and cheese. After 
fighting some jetlag, we left Hotel Valgirard to discover Paris, the 'city of lights'. It was fun figuring out the metro 
system and seeing all the monuments which before had only been in books or magazines. Ordering a simple thing like 
a sandwich or a drink made it suddenly clear the importance of Grade 9 French. We dined at the Eiffel Tower, visited 
Notre Dame, walked inquisitively through the catacombs, and fought the crowds at the Louvre. Although exploring 
Paris was interesting, it was tiring and quite hard on the feet and footwear. After this tasty introduction to parisian life, 
we took the fast speed train (TGV) to Angers in the Loire Valley. Here, the students stayed with families for 5 days. 
Now, the true pressure of speaking French was on them. How would they do? Quelle experience!! After the home 
stay and with more French culture under their belts, the group headed off by bus to visit the famous chateaux. Kodak's 
stocks went up. Travelling north to Normandy and Bntanny we were awed by the splendour of Mont St. Michel and the 
old-world charm of St. Male, a walled city on the rocky coast. One day we travelled along the coast to visit the D-Day 
beaches and, of course, the Canadian and American cemeteries. This was a time of reflection for many of us. On the 
road back to Paris we overnighted in Rouen, a city on the Seine river, where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. 
Julian, our tour guide, gave us many good insights into the history of France and the regions that we visited. In short, 
a terrific trip which we will not forget for long. (Vania, Elizabeth, Q.B, Nick, Terrence,Nic, Richard and Monsieur La

During Spring Break 1997, IVlr. Jackson and Mr. Leggett led 
twenty students and four parents on an adventure to 
Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. The trip proved to an 
experience of a lifetime and will be remembered by every- 
one. After passing our first day in the capital, Quito, we 
boarded the bus (Ghostbusters!) we would spend the next 
five days in. Our mainland tour consisted of a lot of driving, 
with a few stops at key towns along the way, interrupted 
only by Mr. Jackson's geology stops ("Deanna, what kind of 
rocK is this?"). Highlights and lowlights include the kids in 
Banos, hiking up Cotopaxi volcano and the toilets in the 
Amazon. We began the next section of our journey by 
flying 600 miles off the mainland to the Galapagos Islands. 
Upon arrival, we met the boats which would become our 
home over the next five days. The Islas Plazas and The 
Encantata, and the crew, who would become like family. 
Our days included early morning hikes on the islands to see 
everything from boobies to cindercones, days of snorkeling 
with mantarays and sealions, and nights that ranged from 
watching the stars to discoing in town. There is no doubt 
that the memories of the lunar eclipse, the dolphins, the 
birds, and the tortoises will remain with us forever. Thanks 
Mr. J!!!!!!! 


No, it's not an oxymoron; the truth is, absolutely everything about the spring break London Theatre Trip was 

fabulous, even the weather. Seven days and seven females in a city if culture and shopping... well how could it 
not be a success? 

Highlights of the trip include front row seats to the one-man play "The Importance of Being Oscar," and back- 
alley loitering to obtain an autograph from the star (none other than Simon Callow, of Four Weddings and a 
Funeral .) Equally spectacular was the art exhibit at the Barbican Centre: "Modern Art in Britain 1910-14," which 
features the works of various Bloomsbury artists, with a few Van Gogh's, Picasso's and Gaugin's thrown in to 
ensure heart palipitations. 

Musical desires were fulfilled by the Lyceum Theatre's production of Jesus Christ Superstar (Cara almost 
passed out with rapture) and perhaps moreso by Ali and Cara's reggae renditions in various Underground 
stations! We also spent time at Westminister Abbey and Cathedral, Buckingham Palace (ask anyone about 
"Robert"), the British Museum and Madame Tussaud's. Shopping? Everywhere and all the time! 

It was a great trip, with the best company!

It has been a pleasure to see the park benches in the quad being enjoyed by our students this year. 
The benches were placed there as a result of a Student Council initiative and financial help from 
the Parent's Auxiliary. 

We have held meetings on a regular basis throughout the year attending to the many and varied 
concerns of the student body. There have been questions about the uniform, the sports 
programme , the timetable , the tuck shop ,and so the list goes on. 

The Council is not a high profile organization but it is important to recognize it as a vital channel for 
the students at S.M.U.S. to voice their ideas and concerns. 
My thanks to the student representatives for a job well done.

Peer counselling at SMUS continues to involve an active group of people who volunteer their 
time to support their friends. They work hard to acquire basic counselling skills, as well as learning 
what resources are available to people who need help with life situations. The open house at the 
CRD Birth Control Clinic, and a visit from a volunteer on the Need Crisis Line helped us look out- 
side the world of SMUS. 

The time commitment is big, but so is the satisfaction of helping. An added compensation is that 
peer counselling hours can be counted toward CAPP work experience, or for the service compo- 
nent of the Duke of Edinburgh program. 

A major disappointment this year was that the Lion's Club Camp at Shawnigan Lake was not 
available for our annual "retreat". Between that and academic, athletic, and fine arts demands, the 
peer counselling trip never happened; this in spite of Becky's willingness to host us on Salt Spring 

In May the group did some work with the grade 8 classes on the topics of alcohol, smoking and 
marijuana. Mr. Yorath was very enthusiastic about this project and hopes to expand the contact 
between peer counsellors and middle school students in the future. 

As always it is hard to say goodbye to graduating students, although we wish them the best in 
whatever comes next. This year they are: Peter Andrachuk, Tina Barrett, Becky Bazzard, Jen 
Coelho, Jen Ford, Andrea Horsman, Joy Liu, and Matt Turner. Other members of the group are: 
Sabrina Loiacono, Louise Ritson, Rebecca Anglin, Roxanne Black, Emily Huddart, Carol Lewis, 
Kim Lobb, Jenny Reed, Christine Wenman.

The recitation competition is always an exciting event and this year was no exception. The finals were held in the school chapel before 
an audience of perhaps eighty people and there were some wonderful performances. Lindsay Basarab began the evening with a 
polished delivery of the Desiderata. Peter Kim in the cultural then moved the audience with a heartfelt delivery, first in his native lan- 
guage and then in English of a poem called Birthplace. He was followed by wonderful performances by Clare Jones, Morgan Evans, 
Jessica Miller, Vanessa Lee, Bronwen Bell and Tara Elson. After the interlude, Chris James instructed the audience in The Addressing 
of Cats and Goldie Chan delivered another moving cultural piece called Tradition. Matthieu Boyd then delivered a very mature rendition 
of two Leonard Cohen poems and was followed by two equally strong performances by All Staseson doing a monologue which goes 
dreadfully awry and Jenny Reed delivering a dignified recitation of a Louis MacNiece poem. The evening ended with an engaging 
performance of Angels in America by Rachel Magnusson. Matthieu Boyd won the award for the top junior. All Staseson was the top 
Dramatic piece by a senior and Peter Kim won the grand prize for his wonderful performance of the poem Birthplace. My congratulations 
to all of the participants and I hope that the tradition of excellence which this competition represents will continue well into the future.

How to provide students who love to read the opportunity to share their interests in bool<s and reading with 
others? The answer lay in formation of the first Booklover's Club. Our goals were to share favourite books, nneet 
with other booklovers in the school, of students from Grade 9-12, three staff members and an honorary patron, Mrs. 
Anne Snowden as part of the Club. 

We listened to Ki t Pearson, Tim Wynn-Jones and Karen Cushman at the Children's Literature Round Table 
evenings, and visited the Junior School to hear storyteller. Nan Gregory(How Smudge Came!) The 7.15am start for 
the Princess Mary Restaurant Author Breakfasts on mid-winter mornings did not deter us from listening to authors 
and artists such as Roy Vickers and David Bouchard. Mrs. Snowden hosted a Christmas lunch at Reynold's 
House where we shared new books, excellent company and Christmas cheer. 

In February we browsed the bookshelves at Bolens and chose books which now have yellow SMUS Booklovers' 
Choice stickers on their front covers (look out for orange SMUS Student Choice and green SMUS Staff Choice!) 
designed by Mrs. Waksel. 

We finished off the year with a t-shirt competition (thank you Miss Greer, Ashley and Lindsay) and a wonderful 
potluck bartecue at Reynold's House with Mrs. Snowden where we said farewell to Kathryn Wynn and Michelle 
Phipps and made plans for next year. In the Fall we will welcome all interested new members. 

Thank you Kathryn, Michelle, Cathy, Lindsay, Katherine, Philip, Ashley, Mrs Waksel, Miss Greer and Mrs. 
Snowden for your contribution to the first Booklover's Club! We look forward to another enjoyable year sharing our 
common maxim: "I cannot live without books" (Thomas Jefferson)

This year the jazz band under the direction of Mr. IVIacKay did a tour of Ontario . We started the trip by flying to Toronto 
where we connected with our hosts from Upper Canada College and Bishop Strachan School. The next day we played an 
extremely well received concert for the girls at Bishop Strachan. After that we went to the CN Tower and then did a nice 
walking tour of Toronto with Mr Belliveau as our guide. He along with Mr. MacKay's wife, Audrey (the band mom) were the 
other chaperones on the trip and appeared to enjoy themselves immensely. 

The next day we headed out to Woodbndge, an Italian community on the outskirts of Toronto. Mr. Lettieri had brought his 
band out to our school in March and his students were extremely receptive to us and treated us royally. We played a one 
hour concert for them, settled in with our billets for the night and the next day visited Canada's Wonderland, an outrageous 
roller coaster park. It was great fun and even Mr. MacKay did the"Drop Zone" a couple of times. There was no way, 
however, that Mr, Belliveau was going to do that. 

Our next stop was Lakefield College where we again were treated most kindly by Mr. Grasmuck and the students. The 
concert there was one of the finest any jazz band from SMU has ever played and the students of LCS were very respon- 

On Saturday we bussed to Ottawa, spent some time touring and then settled into our hotel where Alex, Patrick and Bryce 
put on a mini jazz show around the pool. The next morning we were off to the National Music Festival in Hull. We listened 
to a few bands then played our set and waited for the results. What a pleasant surprise for our group to win a silver medal 
at this level. Everyone was ecstatic. We then went to the closing ceremonies and flew home the next morning. All in all it 
was a very good trip and a fine time was had by everyone.

In the words of Robert Herrick, "Old time is still a-flying" and this year is no exception. It seems like only yesterday that we welcomed everyone back 
from summer vacation. We were joined by lyiike (son and Kelly Greenwell, two new house assistants who adjusted quickly to their new jobs. New 
students were Ken Lee. Omar Alasaly and a latecomer from England, Jon Hampson. Greatly reduced in size due to the top floor take-over by Winslow 
girls, our twenty-two Barnacle Baselisks fought bravely in the battle of the housepoints to maintain their second place finish. 

The year has been both hectic and rewarding for most of us. House dinner at Earl's, barbecues at the G's, inner-house basketball nights and ten 
pin bowling, movie and Pizza nights, are just a few of the popular activities in which we participated. Other things, somewhat less advertised, have also 
been recorded: the return of Ryota's long-lost yen; the late night excursion of BJ and Mafu; the extraordinary flood in J and O's room [ugh!] GG and J's 
morning sleep-a-thons; GG's strange cackling laughter emitting from rooms all over the house: weird noises from Winslow disturbing the dead zone of 
the upstairs hallway: talkathons in the front hall: strange disappearances: GG, J and S's marathon morning sleepins: strange smells- Korean cooking 
?'-!*$# - was that music? GG, J, S and J-W sleepins: the yucky award-winning room of J and S: K's yellow specs and silk pj's; and 01 pacing the 


On a serious note, there was a lot to be proud of this year. There has been so much that we cannot mention everyone, but you know who you are. 
On the academic front, most Bamaciers made satisfying progress. Well done! Hearty Congratulations to all those who have given their untiring effort to 
Drama. Rugby, Basketball, Soccer, Badminton, Scorekeeping, Choirs, food Committee, pop-can collecting and volunteer wori<. Better luck next year to 
those who did not participate. Tsk! Tsk! 

There are some bouquets to be handed out: to Mr. Kuklinski [Mr 3K Coy], our able assistant, who is fast becoming a world renowned Rugby 
referee: to Mr. Mike Ison, [Big Red] who came to us from Ridley College and is moving over to Bolton to become the Grade Eight Supervisor: to Mr. 
Kelly Greenwell, [I hate Vancouver] an alumnus of SMUS, who will remain next year; thank you for your many contributions throughout the year to life in 
Barnacle House. 

A big thank you for the excellent leadership of our Head of House Sendjaja Desember. ably supported by Assistant Sunny Kim and prefects Lucas 
Lee, Borden Tseng and Glen Gibbons. Finally as we say goodbye to our grads, Sendjaja, Sunny, Lucas, Jae-Won, Ben, Borden, Glen, Jeff and Jon, 
and to James, who will continue his education in England, we Bamaciers wish you all good health and happiness as you pull out of the SMUS station. 
May the next section of track on your journey along life's railroad be stimulating, rewarding and smoke-free.

This was a year of a lot of ups and two big downs I'll start with the good news Within the last twenty-four hours the secunty blanket surrounding the identity of the House Competition champions was finally lifted. 

to a yawn from Yos and polite applause from the other five houses. This year's version of the competition was a tight affair that came down to the last event on the last day and produced a result that was a tnbute 

to all who participated, but in particular to the grade twelves, who set a great example of commitment and leadership Bolton performed well in all areas of the competition, showing exceptional musicianship in 

basketball games and a deftness of touch in taping a fellow student to the gym wall: disqualified in the orange-passmg contest for eating the orange, we rebounded in the wrap-a-studenl-in-toilet-paper competition 

to win with a straight flush. My one regret was that the boarding community did not get the opportunity to witness the speed and skill of our soccer and floor hockey teams, but this was partly offset by the 

performance of our relay teams - Vmce. Ed. Chns and Danny in the 4X50-metre relay and Jesse and Gustavo in the race to fetch a replacement egg for the egg-and-spoon race after we lost the hard-boiled one. 

Other houses might be interested to learn that our success this year has been due to avoiding vegetables and having mothers who. to judge by their phone calls dunng prep, are much younger than you would 

expect; the tendency of the basement to flood at the start of the year also kept us alert and fit. 

The year marked the end of an era. to represent it in any other terms would be to understate the impact that Messrs Jeremy Goodwin and Todd Milford have had on Bolton House, the school and westem 

civilization in general since the beginning of the nineties The announcement of Mr Goodwin's impending retirement from boarding did not come as a shock, since his shift in the vineyard has been a long one and of 

late his glance has strayed with increasing frequency and ardour to his golf clubs Nonetheless, it was not long before the implications of his move began to sink in and we realized that next year the comdors 

would no longer resonate to stentorian sounds ot displeasure as JJG discovered grade eights under a pile of laundry, or underwear that contravened most of the provisions of the Geneva Conventon; or Yos in 

bed; no longer would we be treated to the spectacle ot JJ attacking a toilet bowl with his redoubtable plunger in a manner reminiscent of Don Qui)Ote and his windmills: no more would the pocket money be 

distnbuted by colour rather than by amount Like the well-worn but beloved jacket of an elderly golfer, JJ was as much a part of Bolton House as the walls and doors - more dependably so. in fact, since he didnl 

sag or spnng leaks as often and his handles didn't fall off. 

He will view his six years in the latest edition of Bolton House with a mixture of tolerant amusement, fnjstration. despair and, we hope, affection: amusement at our attempts to establish any kind of routine; 

fnjstration and despair as some rooms turned into archaeological middens; affection for what has become a large, unnjiy but extraordmanly loyal family. I can say with some conviction that certain memones of his 

association with the House will haunt him to the end of his days: his weekly duels with Chns Fulton, the king of the bath mat; Dermott Hutlon, the singing nun, Bawo Daibo and Euan Frew, whose room provided 

living evidence of the ability of matter to expand and occupy a space larger than that available, and Yos, who spent more of the year asleep than awake and is probably unaware that Mr Goodwin ever addressed 

him. These ghosts will cause him to shank the occasional dnve, but he will remember them fondly in the secunty of a distant bunker or clubhouse. The bronchial moaning of the vacuum cleaners on Thursday 

evenings will be more mournful, and there will not be the same snap to the closing of drawers on a week's worth of detntus at the approach of the Grand Inquisitor. He will be missed. 

The vacuums will also be playing a lament for the departure of an assistant, a fnend and a mentor whose sojoum in the House has been shorter than JJ's but nonetheless amazingly nch in human warmth, 

commitment and vitality Todd Milford joined us in September, I993.and, in a world of uniforms, protocol and adolescent stnving for sophistication, at once stood out as a beacon of straightfonward integrity and 

canng. Whether as House Assistant or Grade Eight Advisor, he spent most of his waking hours helping students with their academic work or personal problems, or refining esotenc fnsbee techniques, his 

congenital inability to refuse a favour enmeshed him m such disparate tasks as house- sitting, bike-mending and bootlegging Starbuck's coffee for the duty staff and prefects, and he narrowly escaped a gnsly end 

at the paws of his temporary roommate last Chnstmas Todd has been so much of the heart and soul of Bolton House that we will require a penod of chrysalis- 1 ike introversion before emerging as a new and, we 

tnjst, reinvigorated body. In casual conversation with Ed and Mike the other day I alluded to the possibility that the prefects would consider a grade 1 3 tenn to tide us over the loss of Messrs Goodwin and Milford; 

their hystencal laughter suggested that I might have to wait some time for an answer in the affirmative. 

Considenng that we shall also be losing one of the strongest corps pf prefects m living memory, we might have been tempted to circle the waggons. Fortunately, we can face the future with perhaps more optimism 

than we might have had reason to expect In Mr Charles Bumett we have an Assistant House Parent who understands the vaganes ot Bolton House and bnngs considerable expenence of the SMUS boarding 

system, on lx)th sides of the fence, to the job of filling Mr Goodwin's shoes; in Hywel Jones we have one of the people for whom the fence was built. And. of course, our peripatetic troubadour, Cam Culham, will be 

back to set every duty evening to music Our slate of prefects for next year is strong and imbued with the tnje Bolton virtues, whatever they are; despite the occasional nostalgic glance over the shoulder, we are 

looking forward with confidence to another fine year. 

Farewell to David Hsu and Geoff Gledhill: we have enjoyed your company and hope that you will visit soon To Ed. Mike, Danny. Vince, Gary. Enc, Keith, Voun-Keun and Irvin - thanks for everything: your loyal 

leadership has been responsible for so much of what has gone nght this year, especially for the warm relationships that are so vital for the smooth operation of a student residence. You pass on a healthy torch; it is 

now up to Nick and company to get Yos up m the morning (perhaps by using the healthy torch), to separate David and Scott from their skates, and to find the toilet plunger. Our fingers are crossed.

1997 marks a major turning point in the demographics of the boarding community. Symons House, it was decided, was 
to become a girls' residence for the '97-'98 campaign. So, despite their unanimous conviction to stay there anyway, the 
stallions pictured above represent the last bastion of testosterone ever to grace the halls of the building. This year's 
Sassenachs did not "go gentle into that good night" but forever etched their names into Symons House lore. For example, 
legend has it that Yusuf anf Jack were once found awake during prep. And, although records of the event are spotty at 
best, it has been speculated that Dave may have at one time sat quietly at his desk for almost two straight hours. Ji, 
historians now claim, once endured a whole half hour without talking on the phone. Word is still out on whether Ross may 
have done the same. Daniel and Charles, many say, set an unofficial school record for the most number of consecutive 
tutorials spent in a state of non-attendance. Rigorous scrutiny of the log book also suggests that Gary may have at one 
time been in bed at lights out and that Richard once took in a breath of fresh air (a claim supported by the sharp decline in 
the state economy of Virginia at that same moment). Records also point to an incident in which Milan is reportd to have 
passed a mirror without assuming an interminable series of buff postures. And perhaps most shocking of all, a member of 
the school community reportedly spotted The Artist Formerly Known As Andy on campus during the third term. A rare 

sighting indeed, for that time of year. And speaking of sightings, Shingo was once seen outside the well, these are just 

rumours after all. So, as the year draws to a close and our graduates scatter to the four winds (and the others to the three 
other male houses) a big thank you must be sent out to all for making the year such a memorable one. Mr. Evan Jones and 
Mr. Scott McQueen also take with them our best wishes as they take their leave from life in the residential bubble. 

Remember chaps: The boys may be gone, but the legend lives on.

The year began as a tumultuous one with an extended house (50 girls), four new assistant housemums and me, new to the position of senior housemum. 
Many of the returning girls felt distressed by the lack of familiar faces on staff. However, the new housemums were enthusiastic, optimistic, and ready to 
commit to the house and the girls, and it wasn't long before they proved themselves kind, caring and supportive. By second term relationships had been 
formed and the girls were into a positive routine. There was never a dull moment as our lives seemed to be one (melo)drama after another with the girls and 
housemums swept up in the constant ebb and flood of emotional experiences. Jamie (grade 1 1 ). in a farewell speech to her roommate. Mellissa. at the year 
end picnic, eluded to the often intense relationships that develop in boarding when she stated that "you either hate or love your roommate!" Thankfully she 
loved her roommate ("even more than Ivan!"). However not every roommate painng is so fortunate, and many girls go through the experience of learning to 
compromise, to communicate specific needs, and hopefully, to develop compassion and diplomacy in the process. 

The year was extremely eventful with weekly activities such as swimming and Family Time (baking cookies and watching 90210 were favourites). Also, 
there were numerous seasonal activities, Girls nights at Wenman Pavilion, and house dinners and picnics. Then there was the house event of the year, the 
Winslow Raid!! The housemums, aliases Vice, Thunder, Coug, Lucky Lady and Jimmy, dressed in black and donning sunglasses, whipped the girls into a 
frenzy of excitement and house spirit. The war paint came out. the house chant resonated throughout the quad, and the Winslow girls were left shocked and 
thoroughly crushed in games of Shoes and tug of war! One of the girls commented she felt the Timmis spirit "pulsing through her veins!" 

Besides these many and varied house events, the girls were witness to the progression of two pregnancies. On the eve of January 06, a few hours 
before our house meeting to welcome the girls back from Christmas holidays. I phoned Ms. Walinga to say I would not be able to run the meeting because I 
thought (though I was not convinced ) that I was in labour. Word traveled quickly and within minutes the house was in hysteria. I had continual knocks at my 
door from excited and expectant faces offering everything from good luck hugs and a dream catcher for the baby, to chocolate chip cookies!! I drank raspberry 
leaf tea (supposedly reduces the intensity of labour) with the other housemums in between contractions. It was wonderful and very supportive to be able to 
share this emotional and awesome experience with the girls and the housemums. and just before midnight. Graeme was born (in the hospital)! And as I write 
this, Mrs. Belliveau sits beside me with a very distended belly, being only 3 weeks away from her delivery due date. We wish her a safe, gentle and speedy 
delivery of her baby. There are many more such tales and each girl will have her own favourite stones and memories of the year. 

Thank you to our prefects: Andrea Horsman (head of house), Vanessa Yang, Jennifer Ford. Michelle Hau, Amber Hall, and Alisa Cooper for their 
sterling efforts and leadership throughout the year. To the housemums: Ms. Walinga. Mrs. Belliveau. Ms. Miller, and Ms. Hannan, my dear friends, thank you 
for your unwavehng support and love of the girls. To the graduates, we hope you have learned from your experiences here and are now ready for the years 
ahead. We wish you all the best and expect you to keep in touch. To Mrs. Belliveau and the girls who will be moving to Symons house (the new girls' house), 
we are sad you will no longer be apart of the Timmis family, but comforted by the knowledge that you will still be living in the building and that we will see you 
daily. Thanks to Ms, Hannan, affectionately known as Jimmy, for such a warm and compassionate spirit. You have given yourself so completely to this school , 
and especially to our house. You are loved dearly and will be missed beyond words. We wish you a safe trip home to Australia and a wonderful reunion with 
your family. To the girls returning, we look forward to a smaller house and a fabulous year along side our new sister house.

The year passed far too quickly in a whirlwind of activity and change, September arrived, as did 28 new girls, 21 returning 
house vets; and new house staff Ms. Hart. Ms. Hunter and Mrs. Forbes. The increase in girl boarders caused the third floor of 
Winslow to extend across to the third floor of Barnacle. The prefects and house staff held their breath in anticipation- what 
would this year bring and how were we going to effectively manage and connect with girls? 

The year was good to us and the girls are to be credited for creating a home which was filled with warmth and spirit. The 
girls learned and practiced the value of good friendship and sisterhood. This year's prefects, Jen deHaan, Head of House, 
Yan Mak, Coille Atchiey, Marisa Ishihara, Sharon Om, Connie Sze and housekeeper Joy Liu, are to be commended for their 
outstanding contributions to the house. 

This year's "sanctioned" house activities included: dinner at Macaroni Grill, movie nights, video nights, waterfights, the first 
annual house ski trip to Mt. Washington (tagged by the girls, "chick trip 1997"), pizza and ice cream cake nights and Mrs. 
Tongue's snack nights. We topped the year off with an elegant evening out on the town - the girls were dressed to the nines 
and we started the night with a Tally Ho Carriage tour of Beacon Hill Park, then moved on to the Grand Pacific Hotel for dinner 
in our own pnvate dining room. 

Beyond the classroom and the house, the girls were also very generous with their time and energy. Many of the girls 
performed volunteer duties at the local hospital, spending time with senior citizens, volunteering with alumni weekend and 
working with the Global Society. 

Thank you girls, for a wonderful year. To our graduating Winslow girls, we wish you success and happiness in your life 
ahead and beyond the doors of your home at Winslow House.
